My profile

I'm Ian Pringle in Vancouver, Canada. I'm a media specialist with the Commonwealth of Learning. I love media, especially media you can use. Coming out of my own experience, I am most interested in working with young people and others that are looking for tools to express their ideas and get information. I've been working for many years with groups into community radio, TV and new media tools. After ten years as a broadcaster and programme organizer here in Canada, I worked with media groups in South Asia for eight years. Before coming back to Vancouver, I was fortunate to spend a year at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris coordinating the Organization's community media and ICT programmes.

My interests

I'm interested in:

  • Local development
  • Community media
  • New media tools

Notes from my WikiNeighbours

Very nice to meet you here. WikiEducator is a very warm and comfortable community. () . If there is any way I can help you, please let me know (coloured backgrounds, margins, user pages in multiple languages). Come visit my user page. Also, just to remind you, I put up a new page on which you can practice collaborating, by using your editorial skills included in the tutorial. See: Alternative Teaching methods and add your comments, criticisms, more methods, or reflections. Just try it. Cheers, Phil. --Phil Bartle 10:44, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

  • 80px-Wikineighbour V2.pngHi Ian, I'm your WikiNeighbour. Just stopped to say hello. I'll be assisting Nellie Deutsch facilitating the EL4C24 Wiki Skills Training Workshop (March 30 - April 3) for Community Media Practitioners and HIV AIDS Treatment Literacy Experts. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you. Gladys Gahona.--chela5808 06:50, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Coincidence: I went to George Pringle Scondary School, Westbank, BC. Any relation? (He was from Peachland) --Philbartle 06:43, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
