It seems this assignment will be a little challenging for me. Our task is to establish connect with two international organizations in order to build and strengthen our awareness of early childhood supports outside our country.
First, I previewed the list of resources provided for us on the link. Next, I went to each site and read and searched for something that would catch my attention. Then, I found two organizations that caught my attention and looked further into the websites. And finally, I contacted, via email, the directors of the organizations and asked to establish a relationship with someone there. So far, I have not received any feedback, which leads me to believe that I will have to search the other organizations, as well as take the advice of Kristina (thank you) and look at other channels (i.e. facebook) to find a suitable organization.
After having searched, I found a very interesting prospect. The website that I chose to use as a reference for this course is the World Organization for Early Childhood Education ( also known as OMEP). This is an organization composed of teachers, advocates, students, etc, dedicated to improving early childhood education nationally and internationally. I am excited about this site and have contacted someone and hope to hear something soon. I advice my colleagues to keep searching no matter how hard it may seem. Think and look outside the box and be persistent.
