Phil Bartle

I was an aid worker overseas and a sociology professor, but health has stopped me from travel, so I do it vicariously through a web site of training material for community workers, over five thousand pages and half a million page views per month. Organized a not for profit society, Community Empowerment Collective (CEC) of about two hundred on line volunteers, mostly translators. Annual budget of zero. I have dedicated all our training material to WikiEducator so you are invited to visit and see what is there that you can edit for your own purposes, I have got all the help I asked for from WikiEd, and enjoy meeting the others I meet.--Phil Bartle 07:09, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Great to "see" so much of your work on Wikieducator. I wish I could keep up with you. :) --Nellie Deutsch 09:47, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hello my dear professor. CEC is definitely a jewel you have so generously donated to humanity. Thanks for the training material. Gladys. --chela5808 15:55, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi Phil,Great to see you here also.You put those comments on my userpage discussion section? Because i wasn't able to locate your comments.--Yanubha 19:37, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi Phil, it's better late than never ! I saw your comments on my userpage discussion section and put my reply there; After some thought, I'm not sure whether that was the "right" place. Should I have replied on your discussion page ? Hmmmm, finding my way round this new "structure" is very interesting --Helen Davies

Victoria Spagnolo

Kia Ora. My passions are my whānau and helping other parents by working with Playcentre. I focus on adult education by being a tutor with the Wellington Playcentre Association, a member of the SPACE team, and a member of the New Zealand Playcentre Federation Education Team. Some of the tasks I do well and some I am still learning.

I started out as a Computer Engineer (I am old enough to think in octal) and only after children did I understand how little I knew about people. I came across some NLP training and took a chance. It remains one of the best things I have ever done in my life. Suddenly, people made sense to me, not just machines. I would not be a tutor without those skills and I am certainly a more capable mother.

My distractions are currently 1) clearing the back section and 2) watching Star Trek Voyager.

And thank you to Wayne Mackintosh, whose passion got me here.

--Victoria Spagnolo 23:41, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Kia Ora. You are an inspiration, Victoria. Passion is catchy. I am looking forward to our continued collaboration. Have you considered a project on mothers? I am sure you would have many members. I would love to collaborate on the development of a workshop on parenting. --Nellie Deutsch 08:30, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
