Our Community


Our community is made up of students, teachers, and RI-SOL staff in the USA, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Tajikistan, and Palestine. We are all dedicated to making connections between each other, developing a deep understanding of each other's cultures, traditions and contributions, and learning first-hand what it means to be global citizens. This wiki gives us the perfect opportunity to create a global community for ourselves!

Everyone involved in our community is encouraged to introduce themselves on our Members page. We also hope you will create your own personal page in this site, by clicking on the "New Page" link to the left, and link to it on our Members page.

Organizers in all of our participating countries can be reached by email:

US: Bozena Morawski
Afghanistan: Mumtaza Abdurazzakova
Bangladesh: Sajeda Begum
Palestine: Davina Jeffery
Tajikistan: Ibrahim Rustamov

If you are a teacher or student interested in becoming a part of RI-SOL's GCEP programs, please email Bozena.

Rules and Regulations for Using the GCYP Wiki


Please respect everyone participating in creating this wikispace! Wikis are a community effort, which means we all must actively practice our community-building skills here.

  1. Do not be afraid to express yourself! This is your community, and your ideas are important and absolutely necessary for its growth!
  2. Please use language appropriate for school. That means no “netspeak” or “IM talk” and trying your best to maintain proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
  3. At all times be respectful in your postings and edits. No trash-talk, inappropriate language, personal insults, profanity, spam, racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, or threatening comments will be tolerated. Remember, this is a community!
  4. Do not plagiarize. Instead, use your own words, expand on others' ideas and give credit where it is due. Only post photos or other content which are school appropriate and either uncopywrited or correctly cited. This is a collaborative effort, which means everyone (including you!) must be respected!
  5. Make every effort only to add to the conversation and content of each page. If you find what you believe is a mistake in content, please do not edit or delete the work of another participant without including a written explanation for the changes in the Discussion area for that page.
  6. The discussion area exists as a place to work out problems or disagreements. If you want to comment on something, or feel like there has been a mistake in content, please use the discussion area, so that the page keeps clean and readable.
  7. Remember that the discussion area also is a place of community and of respect!
  8. Make sure not to include any information or images on the site that could compromise the safety of yourself or other wiki members.
  9. Please protect your log-in and password information, as well as class passwords (if any). If you suspect that a password has been compromised, please notify your teacher or your country’s Organizer immediately.
  10. Every participant must take care to also follow all their own school’s rules about acceptable use of computers, websites and technology.
  11. No posting or edit may facilitate or promote illegal activity, either overtly or by implication.
  12. Any pages you create on your own, including personal member pages, must also follow these rules!
  13. Please take extra care to respect the pages created by others

Consequences



Your teachers and each country's Organizers are monitoring this site daily! Anyone found to be in violation of these rules will have their accounts de-activated. Each teacher will then individually decide the consequences for your grade/points.

If you find that one of these rules has been violated, please inform your teacher or country Organizer immediately. We will do all we can to ensure that this remains an open, respectful and truly global community.
