11 April 2011

Mr. Wilmarth teaches at the Hua Shi Yi Fu Zhong school in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. His class are using Freerice and iPads to turn the game into a powerful tool for teaching languages, while raising over a million grains to feed the world's hungry.

Congratulations and thank you to Mr Wilmarth's Class!

You can find out more about Mr. Wilmarth's approach to using Freerice on the World Food Programme's Student's and Teacher's section.

That's just amazing~ If every single class in the world tried to do the same, a lot of starving people could be saved :) How does a whole class have IPads ? O_o... I live in Canada and we don't have that at my school yet =.=" Well, they're lucky but with that luck, they made a difference :)

I always admire teachers. They are the one that students will never forget. I think teaching is the most cool and at the same time difficult job in the whole world. So to all teachers out there, YOU ROCK! Keep up the good work, be patient as always.
