I am a student again! I adore studying and learning new things and I am very happy to be participating in the 10-day WikiEducator Learning4Content 29th Online Workshop, which began today. I hope to share this journey with you and I will keep you updated on my progress. Like all new students on any course, I am excited about the new challenges that lie ahead, but also a bit apprehensive. Will I be able to keep up? Will I understand everything? Will I be able to contribute effectively? What can I contribute? Will I be able to focus on the tasks? How will I interact with all the other participants from around the globe? Will I be able to participate in the course without any obstacles?
I had enrolled on two occasions on this particular course earlier in the year, but was unable to participate due to unforseen family circumstances. Fingers crossed, I can complete the course this time! One of my tutors is the wonderful Nellie Deutsch. I look forward to having her as my tutor again. She is very kind and very patient. These qualities are so vitally important as a teacher.
Towards a Free Education The main aim of WikiEducator is to create a free version of the education curriculum by 2015. This is an incredible goal and the following video shows Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu talking about the importance of freedom in education.
