NEW YORK Feb. 9, 2011
World Spelling Day, the latest event as part of the World Education Games, organized by the creative team behind Mathletics, Spellodrome and World Math Day.
Last year more than 1 million students from over 235 countries participated in World Math Day. Many of these have already registered for World Spelling Day this year. World Spelling Day is intended to become an equally well-subscribed event. In the lead up to World Spelling Day, players can practice online and on their iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.
In addition, World Spelling Day and UNICEF have joined forces to harness the potential of the event and help give children around the world access to quality learning. Family and friends can sponsor participants, with fifty percent of the funds raised going to each school to spend on educational resources and technology; the other half will go to UNICEF’s Quality Educational Programs.
