Hi Ralph, Julio, Mohamed, Suzana, Artur, and Juan,
Thanks so much for your email just now, Ralph. It looks like we emailed from about 11/28/2015 to 3/26/2016 and re our English speaking learning in group video Hangouts. How are you in Venezuela? The weather isn't too bad in winter in the SF Bay Area. World Univ & Sch has gotten our new wiki and here's the new ESL wiki page - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/English_as_a_Second_Language - which anybody can edit. (And here's the related https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/English_as_a_Second_Language_for_Kids).
I'm checking out the Lego Robotics' WeDo 2.0 - https://education.lego.com/en-us/products/lego-education-wedo-2-0-core-set/45300. It works with the Scratch drag and drop programming language - https://scratch.mit.edu/download - from MIT. (Both involve a couple of other pre-software installations).
I found We Do 2.0 Lego for Education on Harvard Prof. Karen Brennan's Twitter feed recently - https://twitter.com/karen_brennan ...
and re a We Do 2.0 and Scratch Meetup in the city where my parents lived when I was born - https://twitter.com/TOTALTeacher/status/969993653568589824.
We Do 2.0 is potentially usable in an actual-virtual way - https://twitter.com/SpeakkVisually/status/957331694452969472 and https://twitter.com/scratch/status/969333088575684609 - with Scratch programming of the Lego. Cool. I posted all of these tweets here recently - https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch.
If you got a set of We Do 2.0 Lego Education Robots for your son (and if I get a set too), would you like to explore building Lego robots remotely and as ESL for Kids - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/English_as_a_Second_Language_for_Kids - remotely?
This is an ONLINE Robotics, Programming and ESL for kids' learning opportunity all in one :)
Let's see if we can make further the world a better place to live. (Organizing remote WeDo 2.0 / Scratch Meetups in Spanish might be a further opportunity here, but people would need to get the WeDo 2.0 Legos). Does your son already have access to some Lego?
PS It would be fun to connect Lego bricks to words and syllables and letters - and even in all 7,097 living languages.
Download MIT's Scratch 2.0 https://scratch.mit.edu/download & start playing. It's a drag & drop programming language for kids, & free. The Lego WeDo 2.0 robotics set https://education.lego.com/en-us/elementary/shop/wedo-2 … works w Scratch, I've heard. So you can begin programming w Lego https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/03/aesculapian-snake-online-robotics.html … See Videos

@SpeakkVisually my son is ill today and off school. We were so inspired by your realtime world creation that he made this real-time pong! #inspired pic.twitter.com/I6SvKfKxF8— Mark Thornton (@storiesforspace) January 29, 2018
Fabulous #scratchedmeetup this morning in Lexington! I loved having time to play and explore with other educators! Tinkered with LEGO WeDo 2 and sensing with Scratch! Find a meetup near you https://www.meetup.com/pro/scratched @LEGO_Education @ScratchEdTeam
Early-bird registration for the Scratch@MIT conference is now open! Join us in July for a playful gathering of educators, researchers, developers, and other members of the worldwide Scratch community. #ScratchMIT2018 https://t.co/02rBsmls5H pic.twitter.com/DKgvNKRnrp— Scratch Team (@scratch) March 1, 2018
Tinkering with realtime world creation in @Scratch. Character on the screen is coded to interact with different colored objects. (Black is floor. Red is lava. Green is the goal.) Kids can be creating and coding these worlds simultaneously in realtime. pic.twitter.com/giiR6HCmNR— Eric Schilling (@SpeakkVisually) January 27, 2018

Here's World University and School's new Wikipedia entry - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_University_and_School, with an invitation to edit this entry, and add content - except that it doesn't work yet. (I tried posting this in January 2009, but Wikipedia wasn't open then very much either).
And here are some recent, new World University and School Subjects:

Please feel free to add subjects, and to teach, learn, add and create here.
