Hi Carol, I am interested to work with anyone on online education. I currently just finished "teaching digital natives" workshop and our region encourages us to use online resources to teach core subjects in Math, Science, English and Social Studies. If you know anyone or any proposal along these subject, please let me know. Thanks!
Maybe we can share here some information about the workshops that we/our organizations are holding during the IGF?
I currently work at the Center for Technology and Society (CTS), from Getulio Vargas Foundation, in Brazil. CTS is organizing two workshops during the IGF:
1 - Freedom of expression or access to knowledge: are we taking the necessary steps towards an open and inclusive Internet?
The workshop description can be found HERE
2 - Best Practice Forum: An Internet Bill of Rights for Brazil
The workshop proposal can be found HERE
Very briefly, Brazil is going through a very unique moment of internet regulation. By the end of 2009 a process of public consultation was created - in a collaborative way – to establish a civil-rights based regulatory framework for internet in Brazil. The Best Practices Forum aims at presenting at the IGF the Brazilian experience in crafting such legislation out of an open and collaborative process.
I would like to invite you all to show up and share your thoughts!
