My optional community service (learning contract) project

100px-L4C-small.png  Agreement
By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
Brief description of project
to provide extension/practice activities for my learners to tackle at home or during the holidays to continue working on their Spanish independently. Also to provide cultural resources
Target date for completion
This will be ongoing but I will aim to post some activities by beginning of November

My Reflection

Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours

Hi Becky, I hope you have enjoyed this short workshop.  I have found it useful.  I'm thinking it is a good model of how to introduce wikis to faculty members.  What do you think?  --Cheri 16:09, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi Becky, As this workshop is nearing its end now, could you decide on developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by yourself (and others) on WikiEducator? With best wishes, Ramesh Sharma 16:10, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Hello Becky, Since joining OER, I have been awed by New Zealanders. Look at what you people co-create. I am proud to be associated with people like you here, thanks to OER.

It doesn't look like you will need any support at Wiki Buddy from me. My heart must to welcome you to thank you, your country and those wonderful OER souls of New Zealand. Please give me the privilege of helping you if you need some support at your learning adventure at WikiBuddy.

Here is my email. Cordially, Sebastian Panakal My email

Hi Becky: Let me suggest a text that I believe, from a theoretical and practical standpoint, you will find useful, and not too expensive. "Brave New Digital Classroom: Technology and Foreign Language Learning" by Robert J. Blake (2008). Willing to offer up more suggestions if you like.
