Suggest for revised category

Hi Balqis,

I suggest that this page be in Category:Educational Psychology as it is the main page for that topic. The idea is that Category:Educational Psychology is a subcategory of Category:Teacher Education.

Hope you see what I mean. (This will give you a chance to practice using the hotcat to remove a category and add a new one.)

Glad you are applying the category ideas. You will catch on as you continue to practice. Let me know if you have questions.

Take care, Alison

 Hi Alison,
         Yes ,I understood your idea that Educational Psychology is a subcategory under Teacher Education and I should treat this page which you told as the main Category page for Educational Psychology .Isn't it? So  shoould I add the Category Teacher Education there to link this subcategory  (Educational Psychology ) with its main Category page ( Teacher Education) ? Hope that my questions are not troubling you ! I appreciate your patience in teaching me 

Warm wishes

Balqis

Hi Balqis,

I don't think I'm understanding your question....the words that we have available to communicate about categories and pages are very overlapping in meaning. I'll just continue and maybe we can get to a common understanding in any case.

The change you have made to the Ed Psych page is correct. The thing to keep in mind is that regular pages are content (OER), which we want to put into categories with other similar pages, for ease of finding similar content.

Then category pages (any page which begins with the term "Category:") are added as subcategories of related category pages (by adding the Category code of the related category to the category page).

Now if a person lands on the Ed Psych page which you have made, they might go to the Ed Psych category (by clicking the link at the bottom of the page), might look through the resources there, and then might click on the link at the bottom of that page to go to the Teacher Education category to see what's there. And then in the TEacher Ed category they might find another category to investigate.

So far Ed Psych is the only subcategory in Category:Teacher Education, but there should be many more....that is part of the work of the categories workgroup: to work out the logical connections among categories.

I see that you added a few more pages to Category:Educational Psychology. Glad it's coming along.

I am glad to help you better understand how it works. I remember when it was all new to me. Hope this helps.
