My name is Rui de Lima e Silva and I'm a teacher at Colégio Monte Flor since September 2001. In the past 7 years, I've been strongly involved in several projects directed to innovation. In the beginning, we focused our work on Environmental Education and as an Eco-School Coordinator, I'm very pround to say that we've been awarded with the Green Flag since we start participating in this Program developed by FEE (Foundation for the Environmental Education) and ABAE (Associação da Bandeira Azul da Europa).
However, in the past 4 years we centered our work also in Technology and ICT have been an important part of the curriculum of our school.
In 2009 we won the 1st Prize of Ilídio Pinho Foundation with the project "Bolsa de Valores" and one of our students won the National Contest "Artistas Digitais".
In 2010 we got the 1st place at the Etwinning National Awards, in Primary School's Category, with the project Artstronomy.
And in 2011 our project "Eco-Partnerships" was 1st Runner Up in the category Collaboration, at the Microsoft Partners in Learning Forum, in Moscow and 1st Runner Up at the Global Forum, in Washington DC.

This website was created to share my work at Colégio Monte Flor and what my pupils are doing using ICT.
