On the twelfth day of Christmas

my teacher sent to me
Twelve mentors a-menting,
Eleven commenters conversing,
Ten trackbacks a-tracking,
Nine podcasters a-casting,
Eight Skypers skyping,
Seven geese a-honking,
Six tags a-tagging,
Five jubilant learners,
Four annual forums,
Three blogging tools,
Two thoughts inspiring,
And a joyful network for learning.

According to wikipedia:
... the modern use of the word mentor: a trusted friend, counselor or teacher, usually a more experienced person. Some professions have "mentoring programs" in which newcomers are paired with more experienced people in order to obtain good examples and advice as they advance, and schools sometimes have mentoring programs for new students or students who are having difficulties.
The world has flattened such that we can come together and share from each our own backgrounds something we know. This peer learning is also a form of mentorship. We are each experienced in our own way. We can leverage each other in the areas where we individually need to. The Joyful Jubilant Learning group is starting small but with mentors like these amongst us, we can all go far.

As 2007 begins, consider subscribing to Joyful Jubilant Learning. Join us in expanding upon these 12 days of Christmas!

Pick up some new tools, share some of your best practices, learn tagging, Skyping, etc. And above all have some fun doing so!

BTW - we are looking for a few good singers. I don't have a good voice and the others are more reserved.
