Online Dissemination Channels
The GeoGebra Institute- Portugal (IGP)site [www.geogebra.org.pt] was maintained, renewing its potential and keeping its investment in working examples for the classroom and teacher support, extending its use as a channel of support for teacher training. Channels of communication through Facebook and Twiter were developed, including the publication of news about the activities of the institute.

Several teacher training activities were developed: two short-term during ProfMat2011, in collaboration with the Centro de Formação da Associação de Professores de Matemática(1.) ; two in-service training workshops at the Centro de Formação da Escola Superior de Educação do Instituto Politécnico do Porto(2.) ; and one in collaboration with the SPLIU.

At present, the IGP has certified 15 GeoGebra Institute Trainers - level II, and 48 GeoGebra Users - level I.
The IGP organized the “1st GeoGebra Day – Portugal”, that took place on May 21, 2011 at Oporto’s College of Education with 120 teachers attending it. It is expected that the "2nd GeoGebra Day Portugal" will take place on May 26, 2012, probably in Coimbra. The IGP was publicized: a) at AveiroMat (November 5, Aveiro - Secondary School Dr. José Estêvão) through a conference session titled "GeoGebra from 2001 to 2011 - a decade of constant evolution ", b) at the 1st Latin American GeoGebra Conference (November 14, S. Paulo - Pontifical University of St. Paul), through a round-table debate.
The IGP is committed to the dissemination of GeoGebra in Africa, contacts having already been established with teachers in Cap Vert and Angola. Regarding the former, there’s some work with the University of Cap Vert that may soon lead to the creation of the GeoGeobra Institute in this Portuguese-speaking country.
