For students versed in other languages and wanting to help teachers working in bilingual classrooms (and maybe themselves in the future) take a list of commonly used mathematics terms for 5 year olds:

CIRCLE (CIRCLE) - CIRCULO - CERCLE

COMPARISON (MEASUREMENT ) - COMPARACION - COMPARAISONS (MESURAGE)

CONCEPT OF ZERO (NUMBER) - CONCEPTO CERO - CONCEPT ZERO

COUNTING (NUMBER) - CUENTA - COMTAGE

INEQUALITY (NUMBER) - DESIGUALDAD - INEGALITE

MATCHING (SET ) - EMPAREJAMIENTO(CONJUNTO) - APPARIEMENT

MONEY (MEASUREMENT ) - MONEDA - ARGENT

ONE HALF (FRACTION ) - MITAD - DEMI

ORDERING (NUMBER) - PUESTA EN ORDENACION - MISE EN ORDRE

ORDINAL NUMBER (NUMBER) - NUMERO ORDINAL - NOMBRE ORDINAL

TRIANGLE (TRIANGLE ) - TRIANGULO - TRIANGLE

Check the Spanish or French translation (the translations above are 30 years old) and using the translation sign on to the web and search for activities written in the language that a bilingual 5 year old (or the teacher or parents of) could use to help understand the concept. Students could be encouraged to publish their information and links in WikiEducator.

Environmental education


Images

  • WikiEducator has a major challenge regarding proper license attribution of images uploaded on our site --- we need help in identifying and tagging suspect images --- we would need to think about process and support templates to tackle an initiative like this. This may tie up with identifying images which need replacement and or students helping to find appropriate replacements licensed under a free content license. http://wikieducator.org/Images

WikiBuddy

  • We need helpers, with relevant wiki skills who are qualified (or who could potentially qualify) at the level of WikiBuddy to assist with the certification of past L4C participants under the Wikimaster typology ( http://wikieducator.org/WikiMaster ). There are unfortunately a large number of L4C participants who have not formerly applied for certification, or where the facilitator had omitted to apply the certification. This is a very important task under WE's monitoring and evaluation plan to accurately access the skills profile of WE users in accordance with the different categories under the WikiMaster typology.

Translation projects

Translation (Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish) as students have these skills.

  • Handouts4Teachers is a project to promote the collaborative development of handouts used to support teaching in the classroom, for example worksheets, small group projects, homework sheets for students to practice mastery of new concepts, etc.
