Hi Phil - just discovered your work, and from what I've looked at, it looks good. Are you aware of Appropedia, wiki for international development and sustainability? Very relevant to your work. Are you interested in sharing work from your site under the open license? (We use the same license as WikiEducator.) --Chriswaterguy 12:02, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
I've been working on categories of late, although just around the edges because I don't think we have any real consensus on a vision for how they should work. One of our early efforts was to complete a survey of the current category structure on WikiEducator. We noted that there were two categories in which countries would be listed Category:Countries and Category:Country. Just looking at the structure, it's not clear why we have two listings. It wasn't until awhile later that I noticed the description of Category:Country: "Countries other than where English is mainly spoken". (I noted that you created this category last spring). But there are clearly English speaking countries included in the category: Ireland, Canada, Australia. I'm thinking that people don't realize the difference in the two categories. I like the idea of having a category of "countries which are largely non-English speaking" If we named it something more specific like that and then recategorised the countries, I think it would work.
So I'm proposing we do that. What do you think?
Thanks Phil. Will upload my mugshot ASAP. --Bernard Lewis 13:25, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Hi Phil, Thanks for the note on my page. That enabled me to visit your page and I have done so quite a few times. I'm constructing my page now. When you have the time check it out and give me your comments. Cheers, mate. --Bernard Lewis 09:38, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for passing by my page. The list of alternative methods on your page is quite comprehensive. Great job. Thanks for the tips on formatting. I'll try that.
BTW... I noticed your nice template where you has a note and a profile picture. How could you create a template like that?
Hanaa --Hanaakhs 11:13, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, Hanaa. Use your sandbox and create the text, with photo, that you want to use. Then let me know and I will show you how to make a template for it. --Phil Bartle 12:39, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Phil, Thanks for dropping in on my page to say hi. It looks like you have been working on yours for awhile and that you have been deeply involved in e-learning. I am just starting off and although frustrated at times - enjoying my journey very much:) Karen Caldwell
Dear Phil, Thank you very much for your kind message. I am trying some things on the pages like the tag line that Alison kindly explained. What I would like to do is to put a language under the line or inside the explanation, I know Kim Tucker sent me an example but I still cannot get it the way I want. Maybe I am too fussy. I am amazed at your energy and experience. It is a real honour to have you offer any help. --Nadia El Borai 12:52, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
I have colour coded my languages. The links I have made to each language is coloured the same as the backgrounds I use in each language (Yellow for English pink for rench, blue for Spanish, and so on). These colours in turn are the same I use on my Community Empowerment web site. http://www.scn.org/gcad/indexar.htm Take a look. Phil --Phil Bartle 07:54, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
The 12 Principles of Collaboration. This is an archived version - there does not appear to be a current version.
All communities, on or off the web, adhere to basic principles in order to thrive. Mongoose Technology has codified these tenets into the 12 Principles of Collaboration which form the sociological basis of community. The 12 Principles function as a hierarchy. The chief principle, Purpose, is supported by the other 11 principles.
This seems like a pretty good "test" for a community. How does WikiEducator stack up to these criteria?
Thanks for dropping by and saying hello. I am just getting my head around the more intricate aspects of wiki editing and more importantly, finding out more about the community behind wikied. I don't find it easy to find things here but I guess that will change as I become more familiar with things. best wishes Sarah Stewart 02:03, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Go to the people
Translated into Esperanto
al la homoj;
vivu inter ili;
lernu de ili;
ekiru kie ili estas;
laboru kun ili;
konstruu sur tio, kion ili havas.
Sed pri la plej bonaj gvidantoj,
se estas plenumita la tasko,
finfarita la laboro,
la homoj konsente konstatas:
“ Ni ĝin faris mem.”
With kind regards
Dear Phil; I have seen that www. bg. de. es. he. pl. pt. ro. tl. are valid subdomains. Do you know where I can find the actual list? Who is maintaing this list. Regards « לערי ריינהארט » at commons facebook wikieducator.org 19:16, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Woh! You never stop to amaze me Phil! I could bet no "muzungu" knows that about africans,for example. To us looking your elder in the eyes,as you say, is a sign of disrespect. Looks like knowledge about such things befits all of us and is one of those OERs that is long overdue. Thanks.--Vkizza 17:18, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Hi Phil,many thx for the cute borders.Oli musajja mulungi nyo!! Bravo--Vkizza 19:04, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
The more borders open, communities mix and everybody travels, the bigger is a need for social training for older people. When my husband and I first came to the US as graduate students, our "English for Teaching Assistants" course included what I consider "social training." For example, we practiced standing at about a yard from the person we talk with - not more like in Western Europe, not less like in South America. Or, we practiced answering questions within 2-3 seconds, not up to one minute, as in China or Eastern Europe.
Also, autistic people may need more explicit learning in this area.
Most people who enter social media need socialization help learning netiquette. For example, in the last couple of years, many 50+ people joined FaceBook, and many 25- people started to leave it as the social climate there changed so much.
People who enter a new profession, which more and more people need to do repeatedly during their life, also have to learn, or create if the profession is new, different social norms.
Changing social norms consciously is another big part of social learning. It's something we have to teach kids more than we do now. Community forming, social norm design and establishment, changing existing social norms, and recognizing the non-malleable ones.
Hi Phil, Your pages really rocks. How on earth do you make them? I could not figure out from the code!! Thanks in advance
Very nice page! I have yet to make some changes to mine but have been very busy lately.
I do see much potential in open authoring tools, particularly in countries where quality curriculum materials are unaffordable. The ability to reproduce curricula at only the cost of publishing or printing material can make such material accessible more readily and more equitable.
My only concern is that the Creative Commons license under which Wikieducator operates allows material to be used for commercial purposes. How, then, does one prevent businesses whose only interest is to maximize profits, from exploiting this medium? I feel that information in the public domain should be available at no cost as I think most educators who contribute to it do so in the spirit of open learning.
What are your thoughts?
Warm regards, Bernadette http://www.wikieducator.org/User:Rego_b
I am an ardent reader of your "rants" and I must say they are next to
a life line to me! Which made me read all the archives and this latest
one comes at a time when we in the Ugandan group
are bracing ourselves on this journey of OERs hence the advice particularly in the last
line and I quote "...As we develop OERs (Open Educational Resources) we must not
just parrot tired and worn approaches used in the classroom. We need to provide the best, and
that includes a call for more analysis of the needs of the students and of the topics, and
a willingness to be creative, novel and experimental" can't have come at a better time
for us and I am now frantically circulating it to all my colleagues.
