May then, the Muuvit Finnish program made significant advances in Rio de Janeiro. Only now, in July, the knowledge manager of the Institute Share and Muuvit coordinator in Brazil, Maxwill Braga, was twice the city to attend important meetings. On the 6th, he met with directors and representatives of eleven Regional Coordination of Education, responsible for 33 schools that will develop the program. On June 20, it was time to be with the teachers, both the rulers and those who teach many different subjects.
In both meetings, Maxwill presented Muuvit, online and free platform aimed at children aged 9 and twelve years, and the material used for the program (map of South America, student book and other information). In addition, meetings were opportunities to answer questions and talk about education and the expectations of the program implementation in Rio's schools. The assistant of the Municipal educational Undersecretary of Education, Alexandre Rodrigues, was present on both days and proved open to resolve any difficulties of schools as related to information technology, for example.
"I was very pleased with the support of the Municipal of Rio de Janeiro Education and also the engagement and critical thinking of teachers, to ask and participate!" Said the happy Muuvit coordinator in Brazil. "I felt that most are motivated and they really liked the proposal," he added. Printed materials have been sent to Rio for schools to begin program activities in August and continue until the end of the year. Maxwill continue to support them, via platform.
