Tavin, from Vogelweh Elementary School in Germany, lays down the gauntlet to all the schools taking part worldwide – can you and your classmates take on the team at Vogelweh?
Watch out for Tavin and the rest of the Vogelweh students on the Hall of Fame!
My school is The Charter School at Waterstone, and (not meaning to brag) it is an A+ school, where all students know for fact that knowledge is power.
I am really excited to have the opportunity to represent my school, my state, and my country in the World Education Games and competing with kids from different parts of the world. Being part of the saying “Uniting the World in Learning” is great.
To get ready for the Games, I am planning to practice mathletics online, play live mathletics with my classmates, play FCAT explorer and get some tips from my team of helpers.
My instincts are telling me that USA is going to win a gold medal this year. Go USA!
You have a unique opportunity to send two of your classes (60 students) to visit and participate in the World Education Games between 5-7 March at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney (World Maths Day, World Literacy Day and World Science Day).
This is an amazing event for schools and students to be a part of (particularly given the three Guinness World Record attempts) and because spots are filling up fast, we ask that you fill out and return this form as soon as possible.
Please see the below for full details:
Every single year the World Education Games gets bigger and bigger and bigger. This year we are working with our friends at Guinness World Records to look set not one but THREE world records in education.
Back in 2010 (when we were still just World Maths Day!), we set a new world record for the largest ever online mathematics competition. This year we will be looking to smash that record, along with setting new records for largest ever online literacy competition and largest ever online science competition.
The record attempts will actually take place across the official three days of competition, the 5-7 March. All students who participate in the World Education Games across those days will be counted towards the world record attempt.
Make sure you and your school are a part of history – this is the world’s largest education event, let’s break some records!
My name is Toktam Movassagh, proud student of Ridgeview Elementary School, and I am the World Education Games Ambassador representing British Columbia.
I am honoured to have been chosen for this position and am very excited to participate in the World Education Games for the first time! I am thrilled to be meeting my fellow Ambassadors and encouraging students to join and help us beat the world record.
Some of my responsibilities as an Ambassador are writing letters to publicize the event, crafting blogs and encouraging participation! Just this week, I have heard from the Mayor of West Vancouver and the Superintendent of School District 45 who will be visiting our school over the course of the games.
This is also the first year for my school, Ridgeview Elementary, to be participating in the World Education Games and our students are excited. Classes are in training sessions, giving daily updates and are working towards prizes! Less than one month to go!
I’m Kriya and I’m ten years old. I am from India, now living in the Netherlands and a participant from Europe.
I’m proud to be a Senior Correspondents for the World Education Games (WEG). Our school De Blijberg has been selected as a Reporter School for WEG.
Our tasks are to report on the events connected to the World Education Games in the Dutch International schools (DIPS).
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
Hi everyone! I’m Theresia from Singapore.
I’m here to share my story on participating in this event and also some little tips on how to do better:)
This year is my fourth year of World Education Games, which formerly consisted of World Maths Day only. From my experience of participating in this competition in the past years, I have concluded that you must do two things if you want to do well … practise and learn from past experience!
Experience is the best teacher.
Three years ago when I first participated in the World Maths Day 2010, I only used the numbers in my laptop keyboard to type in the answers. I had no idea that it is much faster to key in the answers by using a number pad than keyboard until I saw a video of Kaya G. playing the World Maths Day.
Practise makes perfect.
Last year, I made a promise to myself that I would practise every single day without fail for this year’s event. Might sound a bit ambitious, but I really feel that the frequency of practice plays a very important role in doing well. I’m a bit busy with homework, tests, exams, and band at school, but I still try my best to play 5 games per day for each level of Maths and Spelling, and 5 games in total daily for Science.
All the best!
I can’t wait for the World Education Games to start. I’ve really had fun doing it throughout the years and get a rush of excitement whenever our teachers hand out the slip with our usernames and passwords. I think our school has been doing this since I was I in second grade (just so you know that is 4 years).
I’ve always loved when I’m sitting next to a friend in class, to start the 3…..2……1……Now! Then clicking at the same time, hoping we were competing against each other. My best friend hates math. But she really likes World Math Day and I always like trying to compete against her. And sometimes we do. Then if either of us struck out, that person would go over and watch the other play and try to cheer them on.
I also love the feeling you get when you see your name on the Hall of Fame. And now I see everyone typing at the speed of light and synchronized clicking across the classroom, getting ready for an amazing event that is fun and exciting. Good luck everyone… it’s great fun!
I am twelve years old and in grade seven. I am a World Education Games Ambassador representing Canada and home educated children. I have been having a great time getting ready for the Games!!
I encourage all of you to work hard to get your name up in the Hall of Fame for at least one day during the month of February!! (Hint Hint – pick your favorite subject first – Math, Literacy or Science)
Did you know you can even print that page and show your classmates and encourage them to do the same!!
Taking the role as a World Education Games Ambassador so far has been fantastic! Life has been exciting from promoting the World Education Games in various types of interviews, writing different people of influence, to simply talking with students from different schools. I’m representing the World Education Games and Canada with pride and honor.
The past 2 days have been really great! I met the other 5 Canadian Ambassadors, along with their chaperones, the staff of 3P Learning, and two really inspiring speakers. The whole experience so far has been really awesome and the games haven’t even started.
So, I hope all of you who are reading this are registered and are taking advantage of the practice runs that have been put on the site just for you! Happy World Education Games
