I am writing to you to introduce myself, Alexander Hayes.
I am also writing to you to humbly ask questions of your organisation and community.
I am one of a number of Australia educators who particpate in an online discussion group called Teach And Learn Online. TALO now has many members and regualrly meets face-to-face to discuss all things education and technology. TALO or Teach and Learn Online is an international network of people interested in all things e-learning, flexible learning, online education, networked learning and web 2.0. TALO provides individuals with the opportunity to connect with others who share a common interest in progressing knowledge sharing in an open and diverse collaborative community. A range of active online discussion forums,blogs, wikis, and web feeds are balanced with un-conferences, swap-meets and other spontaneous face-to-face conversations
In 2008 a number of the TALO members are planning a visit to the Philipines ( Manila, Palawan ) and also Thailand ( Bangkok, Mekong ) over a sixteen ( 16 ) day period.
We are looking to secure contacts with organisations in the Philipines who would be interested in hosting an event which provides your organisation with our international perspectives and positions.
A short biographical assay of those participating in this visit can be found at http://www.wikieducator.org/FLNW2
Could you please return an email detailing whom we are best writing to and who you consider would best benefit from this cultural exchange ?
We look forward to your return correspondence.
