My Reflection

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

  • 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)
