Welcome to P2PU What steps should I take to gain access to these learning circles in Chicago as a researcher? I would be honored to conduct an ethnographic case study of these groups. Thank you.
Hi, my name is Anna and I am excited to be working with the P2PU team on the Learning Circles project this fall. I am originally from Finland, but have called Cambridge, MA, home for the past 5 years. I also started my studies at the Harvard Graduate School of Education roughly 1,5 weeks ago – exciting times! For the past few years I have worked and volunteered in developing childcare programs in my community among other things, attempted to learn how to master the craft of making the Finnish style 100% rye sourdough bread, and started learning Spanish together with my daughter.

Hi @jorgebarrero & @Francesco_Stefanizzi! Welcome around here! If you haven’t already, have a look at Learning Circles - face-to-face study groups hosted by anyone with the goal of completing an online course together. There is also a Facilitator Guide available to help you get started. Currently that is the best way to get involved with P2PU.
I’m Ron, and I live in Austin, Texas, USA. Should I begin by confessing to being an octogenarian? Probably I should, but despite my age I still enjoy learning; and I have signed up here because I came across P2PU’s excellent tutorial on Scilab.
Keep up the good work!
Hey Ron - Welcome to P2PU! Great to meet you. This community forum has quieted down a bit over the last few months, but we are hoping to start it up again.
This is so nice initiative

I founded Women of Wiki. I have trained a group of women to use Skype and video conference with socially isolated senior citizens
to help alleviate social isolation of the seniors. The Women of Wiki also add school students to The Conversation Club to help the students develop language skills.
WOW use Duolingo as they collaborate and learn different languages.
Most are volunteers. Some get an honorarium.
Michael Soskil, one of the Finalists at Global Teacher Prize sent me his support to Women of Wiki’s vision and mission.
Standing on the shoulders of giants, Women of Wiki is making a difference - globally; thanks P2PU and similar visionaries.
