The MCM Team wishes Merry Christmas
Another year is drawing to a close (this time probably a very turbulent one for all of us). Christmas is just around the corner. Time for us to take a brief look back at the past year:
- This year, almost 5,500 new tasks were created in the system, so that we now count a total of almost 17,600 tasks in the MathCityMap portal, of which about 7,000 tasks were published.
We also saw a sharp increase in registered users: Approximately 2000 new MathCityMap users registered in the system. In total, the MCM community now counts 6,200 members.
- Our Erasmus+ project MoMaTrE (Mobile Math Trails in Europe) was successfully completed. We would like to thank our European partners from Lyon (France), Porto & Lisbon (Portugal), Santander (Spain) and Nitra (Slovakia) as well as our app developer team from autentek in Berlin for the great collaboration over the past three years. At the end of the project, the ROSETA proceedings all about extracurricular learning with digital media in science and technology subjects was published – of course, the focus here was also on our MCM system.
- In May we were able to present our new MathCityMap web portal: In the new design, creating tasks & trails is even more fun – especially since there are now also awards for working with MathCityMap: For creating tasks & trails, running digital classrooms, downloads of your own trails or your contact to other MCM users, you can collect up to six badges each.
- To make running MCM trails even more fun, we’ve also given our app a new design. In addition to the visual redesign, the app now offers the option to create tasks and trails directly on your phone.
- To support virtual teaching and distance learning, we developed the MCM@home concept: due to the pandemic, the idea here was to solve tasks from home rather than on site. In total, more than 60 MCM@home trails were created worldwide, which were downloaded more than 1500 times. Fantastic!
Not only because of the Corona pandemic, but also caused by the presented further developments of our MCM system, the past year was exciting for us. However, the great development of the user numbers and tasks would not have been possible without your help and use of the platform. And so, despite all the changes, MathCityMap remains what it is: a digital system for school practice.
We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2021. We are already looking forward to welcoming many new members to the MCM community and discovering new, exciting tasks all over the world. Stay healthy!
