They are motivators and filters on how we learn,…See More

Dear Richard,

It is great work you are doing too.  We took love the work you are doing. For starters we could post the event on our platforms, staring with the website, which has quite a good following and we could also tweet it. Perhaps we could also do a short blog on the event and post as well.

Janet.

Hi Richard. Sorry it has taken me years to answer. I am a scientist. I am Mexican-American. I do health related research in USA.  Have done it in Mexico too. I am not an educator but I have a long time dream to participate in  community oriented activities in a particular area of Mexico which will involve some type of education. I am not quite ready to start but I am getting close. 

Mainly I signed up in your group because I admire your work. Congratulations.

I want to learn more about your digital storytelling.
