## My Reflection

I feel like I am winging it and have no idea where this is all going ...

(: Your progress is wonderful I can see you have the capacity to pick up wiki skills easily. warm wishes--Gita Mathur 06:29, 22 April 2010 (UTC))

• Hi Karyn winging it is all good - it is close to flying. I had no idea where Open education and WikiEducator would take me either but it has opened up a vast amount of knowledge, learning and a community that fits well with my philosophies in education. --NathanP 04:31, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
