To blog or not to blog...
Are we doing this to flood inboxes with our "superior knowledge", or to get as many likes and shares as possible?
Are we doing this to not be left behind and do what all the "experts" tell us is the right thing to do?
Are we adding value to the lives of our learners and clients and associates or are we spamming them and making this just one more thing to deal with in a day or week?
OR... are we doing this because we are passionate about what we do and would love to share with those who are on the same journey as we are?
A whole lot of honest and a whole lot of debate later, we realised some of our motivation were for all the wrong reasons and some of our motivation were spot on for the right reasons.
So, while we all have a voice and we all want to be heard, we have to make sure that our voice does not become part of the noise or confusion or dogma going round that is actually drowning out the very voice we want to be heard.
We realised we do not want to shout to be heard. We actually do not care if we do not have the biggest following in South Africa - or even - gasp - the WORLD. We care about a lot of things, all related to education, but not about the likes, the shares and the numbers.
Unless it is because people REALLY like what we have to say,
or think what we are saying is WORTHWHILE to share, or there is value for THEM in joining our numbers.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
We are therefore relaunching the AkukhanYa voice - as a whisper. It is not a shout. It is not meant to drown your voice out, but to raise our voices together and become a tribal chant.
If you want to hear what we have to say or share - we would love to talk to you - softly, gently - with passion! We believe that together our whispers become a bright light, shining the way to great education. A tribe of whisper becomes one voice - together it becomes a tribal chant.

Forum - Voice of the AkuYa Tribes
The "AkuYaTribes Forum" is a place where your voice on educational issues in Southern Africa can be heard. It is not an academic white paper kind of place, but a place of sharing and supporting, discussion and debating.
The forum is a place to ask questions and raise issues - but always in a whisper, never in a shout. Why? Out of respect for each other, out of respect for other people's opinions and ideas. It is a place for proactive change, not negative complaining and mud slinging.
It is a place for your voice - & mine - so that TOGETHER WE SHINE BRIGHTER!
