Informal learning in a "Community of Practice"is gaining more and more acceptance in education, especially under the concept of life-long learning. It is now an agreed fact that envronment learning is a life-long learning process, one that cannot be imparted
by text books alone. Our contexts, experiences, every day practices, aspirations etc. shape the way we learn.
IndianWildlifeClub.com (IWC) is the hub to exchange resources, oportunities and knowledge on nature/wildlife related issues. The IWC platform can be used to network with other nature lovers and plan your initiativies/programs.
The peer to peer world of online learning encourages conversations and reciprocal learning. With the urgency and immediacy of many environmental issues, all of us are students in a life -long learning process. Let us help eah other by communicating, sharing
Over the years IndianWildlifeClub.com has developed into a Community of Practice with users sharing experiences through online chats, travel experiences, weblogs and original articles. We have channeled this information into knowledge, in a Personalized Learning
Environment (PLE) on the web portal.
Do explore the features of "My Page"
All registered users can now change their profile details, see their uploads (blogs, trip reports) on the portal, see the searches they have made in one place and also scribble notes and save them.
Team IWC hope that "My Page" will augment the learning of students who are interested in environment, conservation and ecology.
Involving students in managing their own learning in a variety of contexts, such as building their own personal learning environments (PLEs) according to their goals and interests, is one way of developing the skills and motivation that will serve as tools
for lifelong learning beyond their formal education.
We look forward to your feedback on "My Page".
