GeoGebra has recently awarded the title of GeoGebra Ambassador to individuals who have helped popularized the software. I am honored to be one of the chosen ambassadors.
I have been blogging about GeoGebra for quite a long time. I have created more than 50 tutorials in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. I have created another blog titled GeoGebra Applet Central where I have collected applets since I started using the software.
Here in the Philippines, I am currently a teacher trainer in UP NISMED. UP NISMED is the host Institute of the GeoGebra Institute of Metro Manila, our local GeoGebra Institute. Since 2005, we have been integrating GeoGebra in teacher trainings and curriculum materials development.
Sanjay Gulati (India), and Steve Phelps (USA) of the GeoGebra Institute of Ohio were the other two GeoGebra Ambassadors. I’m sure more people will be awarded.
Thank you GeoGebra!

The aim of GIMM is for teacher and researchers to work together to promote the learning and teaching of mathematics by supporting and coordinating the followingactivities:
- conduct training on GeoGebra,
- develop GeoGebra teaching materials,
- offer workshops for future GeoGebra trainers,
- implement new features of GeoGebra,
- develop an online-support system for teachers,
- design and do research projects, and
- make presentations at national and international conferences.
The University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) is the host of the GIMM.
GIMM’s first activity is a 2-day seminar-workshop on Using GeoGebra in Teaching Mathematics on May 5-6, 2011.
