CALL FOR PAPERS: Life-Long Learning

Posted on 28 January 2009. Filed under: Academic Papers and Research, Announcements, Call for Papers, Children, Education, Opportunities | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Enabling Education Network (EENET) is looking for articles for the 2009 issue of its newsletter “Enabling Education”. (First draft and article ideas should be submitted by January 30, 2009.) The theme of the newsletter is life-long learning. If you could write an article about your experiences of inclusive education in relation to informal, non-formal, alternative, pre-school, vocational or higher education, EENET would love to hear from you.

EENET’s goal with the 2009 newsletter is to publish an entire newsletter that contains no articles that look purely at formal primary and secondary education. They hope you can help them achieve this! If you are not an experienced writer, don’t worry. Send EENET your ideas and they will try to help you to develop these ideas into an article. You may also find it helpful to look at some previous newsletter articles when you are developing ideas for your own article. If you don’t already have copies of “Enabling Education”, please look at the EENET newsletters on their website (click on the highlighted text in this sentence to follow the link).

EENET really encourages you to send them articles that have been researched/written by, or in collaboration with, children and young people. EENET also always welcome articles that make use of drawings, photos, etc.

Number of words: articles should be about 600 words long.

Deadline: first drafts or article ideas should be sent to us by
30th January 2009.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
