A brief introduction

I joined WikiEducator because I believe this is a good opportunity to help people with less experience, especially people who speak Spanish language. I have thinking in share some professional experiences with colleagues in my country but I had not founded the right way. I think WE is a good way to achieve this goal. When I was a student I always gave support to partners or students from other grades with science subjects as Mathematics and Phisics. I liked the experience and I like to teach people but I don´t have the knowledge in this area. I would like to learn more about this area for share my experience in a better way.

  • I am helping to translate WE tutorials into Spanish.
  • I am a WikiNeighbour.
  • I am a eL4C22 Gratuate.
  • I belong to categories workgroup

My Professional Development Interests

  • Learn how to develop teaching resources
  • How to use ITS for distance learning
  • To translate WE tutorials into Spanish language.

(Comment.gif: Hi Jorge, Welcome to the categories workgroup. I look forward to working with you. In addition to contributing to the charter and other organisational aspects of the group, feel free to tackle a bit of the mapping project if you have time -- the directions for what to do and a listing of what's already been done are available at the mapping out the existing category structure section of the tasklist. Thanks for offering to help. --Alison Snieckus 20:59, 15 October 2009 (UTC))
