About Me
I am founding a new startup these days - www.tutorra.com - it's a game where kids in elementary school (mainly grades 3-6) can trade knowledge, create and share, and rediscover not only the joy in curiosity but their natural learning abilities.

I am active on many social network, mainly twitter and facebook, to help build relationship with more education innovators from around the world.

You can often find my on twitter, esecially during the #edchat (every Tuesday).

Connecting students around the globe

Posted on June 3, 2008 at 1:21am 1 Comment

I have a vision where students connect with their peers from around the world. Why? Because it's interesting. It's challenging to create global friendships, across cultures and across seas. And it's interesting to learn what other are studying. Even the very precise studies, like math, are not exact all over the world. Sometimes you need help figuring out a problem and someone from across the world, who studied it in a different way, will offer that different angle that opens your eyes. This is… Continue

Hey there -


Thanks for the really good question.  I teach in the humanities and much of the grading is on completion of academic tasks, written/verbal reflection and projects.  At my school we use a common rubric for the large projects which we call benchmarks.


Grading is on learning task completion, willingness to engage in the learning activities and evidence learning.  A large portion of their grade comes from 2-3 large projects given over the course of the quarter and then assessed with a more filled out version of the rubric skeleton I linked to above.


Talk soon,

I reflected on my reply to your games in education thread shortly after posting and found my writing to be overly argumentative. Hence the deletion. Too much arguing using in-game chat maybe. :D

I'll try giving it another shot today.

I teach 7th. We've started building similar lists with our English and Science teachers. I'll be interested to see how it goes.

OK, forgot one thing. All the stundents in my school have english as a foreign language but they probably won't be able to participate very actively in the 5th grade (even with the help of the english teacher). But will talk with some of the english teachers and we will study how to participate in your project.

My school has students from the 5th to the 9th grade. I don't know what I will teach next year but probably I will have a fifth grade History class, a seventh grade History class (I hope so...) and ICT and I will also probably continue to be the person responsible for the school's ICT.

I like your idea although next school year I won't have any classes where I will teach portuguese (only History and ICT). So, please tell me how you think I can help you. Anyway I can pass you request for collaboration to other teachers at my school which is located in Setúbal (a small town about 4oKms south of Lisbon).
