That is something at least. Feedback from children is also important
:) Can Sugar developers also join this forum?

My hypothesis is that we need to go to the teachers rather than make a
new place for them to come to. But I don't know where they are
currently hanging out. I built a survey to ask that question but could
not get it circulated among the teachers. Perhaps someone closer to
the ground in .UY (and other countries) could do this?

Of course, it may be the case that the teachers are not active in any
social network. In that case, it would seem to make sense to invite
them to a room in an existing network rather create a new network
(although I concede that I am lazy).
