Dear Vivek ji,
Leigh Blackall working with Otago Polytechnic in Educational Development has set up a page for discussions on WE framework of National and Transnational curriculum in the WikiEducator gorup on Google Groups. The discussions are very much interesing and constructive. All WE community members are warm welcome to make it a permanent venue for discussions on Curricula. The intermediate outputs on the discussions will be added/ linked to the Curriculum Project Node ( http://www.wikieducator.org/Curriculum_INDEX ) on WE
Warm regards Anil
Everybody in the civil society must have a right to information, knowledge and best of education. Wikieducator.org and some other related sites are a positive step towards democratization of education and we need to ensure that W.E. promotes dissemination of latest pool of knowledge. This calls for an international framework that could act as a kind of benchmark or index or standard in education. No doubt, local adaptations are required to meet the local needs and socio cultural aspirations, but idea that some may continue getting knowledge which became obsolete long ago, should not be acceptable. Development of international curricula may follow development of national curricula, but we must develop at least some benchmarks on the basic standards in teaching, learning, evaluation, research, assessment, accreditation etc. before designing national curricula (content), and these standards need to be universal for education to become truly democratic. In some areas – say in social sciences, students are still being taught what is 'ancient'. i work in the fields of entrepreneurship development and economics, and in entrepreneurship development curriculum is still based upon thought developed in 1960's and discredited in 1970's and 80's. My economics students are also not being exposed to the latest developments in the field. My friends from some other faculties feel the same. At least we can start with some areas, where curricula needs to be revised urgently, but the contents should be decided only after deciding about the benchmarks in the other fundamental areas.

Welcome (or NAMASTE as we say it in India).
I have been working for the development of entrepreneurship in all areas - be it economic, not for profit, social, political, education and other areas. It will be a good idea to develop a database of people who are willing to associate themselves in this cause and contribute in any way be it shairing of experiences, shairing of research or information, aid learning, conduct the experiments or to use the managemet games developed in their training programmes.

List to be continued.
North-East-West-South-word the Joint Statement should spread and create the desired impact. The wheel of action is already set to motion in our region, that is South. On 13th July the Annual General Body Meeting of the Association of Mangalore University lecturers is held. I will be back here to tell you about the deliberations in connection with Teachers Day 2008.
Dear Vivek Sharma,
I am Dr.Ramakrishnan, an aspiring WikiEducator. A Tutorial on "Realizing Global Citizenship" is under preparation. I have created a practice page: http://wikieducator.org/User:Director/Content_Resource_on_Culture From this page you can go to consequent pages by clicking on the blue phrases/words. The last page contains a collage picture of a human face.
Your comments and suggestions are awaited and I thank you in advance.
I have been working upon the training of entrepreneurs in India using the inputs from Indian culture and thought. Has anybody tried it in other regions? Need for achievement can be incorporated in one's personality by using concepts from 'Gita'- a holy book of Hindus, work ethics by using the concepts of 'nishkaam Karma' 'kirat karo' from Sikhism, 'Halaal' from Islam
I am looking forward to similar work being done by others. I would also like to interact on people with similar thought. --Prof. Vivek Sharma 07:24, 11 January 2008 (CET)
Great project - looking forward to hearing more.
Are you interested in joining the upcoming Learning4Content free wiki skills training? It's happening soon - January 28, and it will be a great opportunity gain additional skills? It's also facilitator-supported, so you can get great feedback!
