The purpose of Learning4Content

Tell me and I'll forget, show me and I may not remember, involve me, and I'll understand.

The Learning4Content project is inspired by this meaningful native North American proverb. We are building capacity among teachers/educators to develop free content for learning, and prioritize wiki skills training in developing countries.

Outcomes/Results
The Learning4Content project is likely the world's largest attempt to develop wiki skills for education. Launched in January 2008, by 30 June 2009 WikiEducator had facilitated 86 workshops training 3,001 educators from 113 different countries.

Get involved ...

There are many ways to get involved with the Learning4Content initiative:
  • share your wiki knowledge and become a facilitator;
  • help to organise a L4C workshop for your country;
  • sign up for free training as a participant and share your knowledge by developing one lesson of free content;
  • ask your employer/institution to sponsor a L4C Workshop - by contributing access to a computer laboratory for the training
  • contribute financially so that we can organise more training workshops;
  • Donate time and run your own wiki skills workshops in your local community;
  • spread the word and tell your friends, colleagues and employers about the Learning4Content project.
  • connect to us through our WikiEducator Facebook Group page

I consider the WikiEducator users and staff to be colleagues and friends
Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire. -- William B. Yeats

Hi, I'm Valerie Taylor and for many years, I have been interested in technology and learning.

I was delighted to discover WikiEducator - the open and free wiki space and the community of practice. I am looking forward to continued association with this ground-breaking organization addressing the needs of learners globally.
