              Hi, my name is Manuel Carruitero and I am from Lima Peru. Peru is a country in south america and is known because of its culture. For example Caral civilization is credited with an antiquity of 5000 years and is considered the oldest civilization in America. It is listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. And also who may not hear about Machu Pichu of the inca civilization.

              And for last about peruvian cuisine that is one of the best and that each year makes an international cuisine festival named Mistura

              I hope I can connect and engage with educators around the world and increase knowledge of education as being a member of Intel Engage.

              My name is Leslie Perry and I'm a teacher in Westchester County, NY. I am a STEAM teacher helping students solve design challenges. I come from a background of graphic and media design. I've spend time learning and teaching design thinking to my students to help them tackle open-ended design challenges. I first found Intel when I was in graduate school and did my master's project helping an "old-school" teacher integrate technology using the Intel Tools for Teaching Visual Ranking app. It was a great project for teacher and students. Besides teaching design, I also teach programming and I'm the EdTech coordinator. At the beginning of the year, I ran a training session showing the teachers some great "gold star" apps that help students no matter the subject. Intel Tools was the one I promoted the most and it was very well received. I'm excited to be a part of this forum. I look forward to connecting with you all.

                              Hola mi nombre es Jeimy Hernández, soy de Esmeraldas, Ecuador y trabajo como docente de Bachillerato en la figura profesional de Aplicaciones Informáticaas.

                               

                              Para mi el proceso educativo cada vez más exigente en el aula de clases, implica el uso de recursos tecnológicos que satisfagan las expectativas de los estudiantes, en el sentido de captar su atención para desarrollar habilidades y destrezas que los conduzcan al desempeño laboral y profesional de forma competente.

                               

                              Asumir el rol de docente en este siglo, es un compromiso que requiere la constante renovación de conocimientos sobre temas y acontecimientos del mundo global que afectan al contexto en el que se desenvuelven docentes, estudiantes y comunidad en general.

                                  Hi, Im Diana and I am a Teacher Librarian in an outer suburb of Sydney. I taught science for 22 years then while I was still working did my Masters in Education in Librarianship. It was by Distance Education so I had to bring myself up to speed with computers which was a great time because the move of schools and teaching into technology was just beginning. I have kept up with a lot but am finding all the new things grow at a faster rate than I can cope with. We have tried moodles but now we have moved into google drive and classroom. I have bits save in Notebook, in google docs and on my computer and flash drives. I have used web 2.0 tools and now some of those I used, one now needs to pay for, when once they were free. Now the younger teachers are telling me about apps. Our Library system has changed to be more useful (finally) and so I have a lot of work to catch up there too.

                                  A few years back I did an Intel training course. I never did get to train anyone because our school was in a muddle. Next year we are organising time on the Timetable for out Year 7s (First year of High School) to do Project based Learning. I am excited to finally be able to properly put my work into action.

                                  Im in a High School 7 - 12, and the kids are mostly from low socio economic background. A mix of nationalities, Australian, Asian, Pacific Islander, New Zealanders, Eastern European, so it is an interesting place to work. We celebrate Multicultural Day each year.

                                  Well  That's another job done, Ollie!.

                                                  Hello! nice to join the group. I am teaching abacus - mental mathematics to children from Montessori till class 6. I joined this group to learn more about stem system of education n how I can introduce it in school s here.

                                                  I live in the beautiful town Arusha ,Tanzania.

                                                  It's a nice place to live in but very backward in education. children n youth here don't get much exposure n help in career support. I hope to start making a difference with the children I teach.
