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!
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
We have been riding in limos, eating at 5-star restaraunts and sleeping at the best hotel in Calgary. Meeting Paul and the other Canadian Ambassadors has been awesome. I have made some new friends and have met other awesome people such as the first person to climb Mount Everest, and a professor that almost lost his life jumping off a cliff into water.
We have already recieved a certificate for being World Education Games Ambassadors.
I think that we have already recieved a once in a lifetime experience that I will charish forever.
My name is Danielle Erb and I am a grade 8 student at Allan A. Greenleaf Elementary School in Waterdown, Ontario, Canada.
This year, I have been chosen to be one of six Ambassadors of the World Education Games 2013 (WEG). Each year, 3P Learning hosts the World Education Games, which is a global online event where students from all over the world compete in a fun and educational competition to see where their spelling, math and science skills compare to other students across the country and around the world.
WEG thinks that it is crucial for children of different ages, backgrounds and skill to compete against each other and show off their learning skills. Schools all over the world are encouraged to register for the Games, and as an Ambassador, my job is to also encourage children all over my country, Canada, to participate in the Games.
The Games are fun and give children all around the world, the chance to engage with friends and students in a fun and educational environment. Prizes are also available to those who participate and demonstrate their skills at a high level. Just think of how far our country, Canada, can get in the world of knowledge. Allowing children and students to participate in the games, it gives them a whole new perspective of fun learning within their class. As an Ambassador for WEG, my tasks and duties are to promote the Games and try to get as many schools/students as possible to register, sign-up and participate in them.
On February 6, I was flown to Calgary for the Official World Education Games Tour 2013. Videographers accompanied myself and the other five Ambassadors while we gave
brief interviews and presentations to several schools trying to promote the World Education Games and the UNICEF School-in-a-Box program. We were driven around in a luxurious limo disguised as a mini-coach bus and we were all treated like royalty for three amazing days. We conducted more interviews about the Games and two of us also did a Radio commercial about Mathletics. The itinerary was packed but we got to spend some leisure time with the other Ambassadors, too. Not only was the trip just about promoting the Games but it was fun!
We also listened to two motivational speakers which were really inspiring to everyone. The trip went fast. At the end of the trip we received a couple of great gifts from 3P
Learning (a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Official Cowboy Hat) thanking us for all the work that we had done. All of the Ambassadors got along great and afterwards plan to keep in touch. I’d like to thank 3P Learning for this amazing opportunity to represent my country for a worldwide competition. Although, I had the trip-of-a-lifetime in the past few days experiencing Calgary, I’ve also been on another once-in-a-lifetime experience that opened my eyes even bigger.
Not only are the Games about uniting the world in learning but they also ensure that students less fortunate than ourselves are given a chance to pursue an education just like us. That’s why UNICEF has partnered with the World Education Games so that schools participating in the World Education Games have the option of supporting UNICEF’s
“School-In-A-Box” program. One of the components of the World Education Games was UNICEF’s “School-In-A-Box”. Last year, my school supported the UNICEF School-In-A-Box fundraiser and raised over $600. The money is used to make education possible by providing children in needy countries with school supplies. Any school that donated a certain amount of money to that particular fundraiser was put in a worldwide draw to win an all expenses paid trip to Vietnam. The whole point of the trip was to show us how in today’s society, children are still struggling to pursue a good education and how the UNICEF funds help out the children that are in need. With such luck, it seems like we’re the farthest possible school from Vietnam, yet we got chosen for this trip of a life time. Myself and another boy, named Eoin, were the lucky ones chosen for this wonderful opportunity to represent our country, Canada on this trip of a lifetime. It has been an incredible journey that I will never forget and will treasure for the rest of my life.
I would like to thank UNICEF, World Education Games, and 3P Learning for making not one, but two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities come true for me! I will strongly encourage as many people as I can to participate in The World Education Games, and make a donation to the UNICEF “School-In-A-Box” fundraiser! I am honoured to be a Youth Ambassador for Canada! You can read about children that don’t have the same opportunities as us in a newspaper, ad or even see it on a TV commercial or program, but once you’re actually there and see everything for yourself first-hand, it really makes you appreciate what you have. It truly inspires you to help and make a difference for those less fortunate.
That’s why, this year, once again, my school will be participating in the World Education Games and will be donating to the UNICEF “School-In-A-Box” program as well…so I really hope you do too!
By competing in the World Literacy Day, the World Maths Day and the World Science Day and through fundraising, you and your school are supporting UNICEF, a very worthwhile cause.
It feels great to be helping kids that are less fortunate around the world.
Make sure you have fun and do your best
