Another nice site (well, I like it!) - especially for anyone working with children, is the International Children's Digital Library.

Thank you, Emma. I agree with Nalin when he said that children our the future. How can educators from non-developing countries help developing countries in order to bridge the gap?

eLearning Africa is a great event. The call for papers is still open until 7 december 2007 so please send your papers.

I attended the first eLearning AFrica conference in Addis Ababa and that was really amazing to connect to all the participants to exchange experiences and knowledge.

Hi Bee
That looks interesting, and at first I thought I'd missed it, but now I'm not quite so sure ...
You've written 01.00am UTC (which was a few hours ago), but the facebook site says that it starts at 1am and ends at 3pm, in London - which struck me as quite a long time, but possibly designed to cover as many time zones as possible. Further down the same page, it says 13.00-15.00 UTC - which hasn't happened yet, so I'll try in a few hours and see if it's that one. I hope so!

Added: Just watching the video now - and I've skimmed the page - it's 13.00-15.00 UTC - which hasn't yet happened (it's 12 hours after the time Facebook had as the starting time & Bee had reposted)

thank you for the link Barbara.
Cannot attend now because I am teaching face-2-face at those moments. I will however keep an eye open for future seminars.

Thank you, Bee. Ken Banks provides excellent ideas on the huge potential of mobile phones in developing countries and engaging the population by making them feel ownership of technology. I have added the video to this post for those who are interested.

Mr. Banks is very busy these days so he couldn't join us in the seminar, but he did join the Facebook group for e-learning in developing and developed countries and has agree to present via Elluminate in a weekend session I am planning at KnowPlace. Ignatia you may join the group in order to view the updates.
