WWMAPS supports and coordinates educational practices and training initiatives focusing on construction of Concept Maps and shared Knowledge Models between students worldwide, through the universal language of Concept Mapping. During the nine months from the foundation, we have looked for technological solutions and partners, we have arranged web services, we have started up and monitored several collaboration teams in primary and secondary schools. Now we can evaluate these first results and study better practices for next and current collaborations. This paper is submitted to the Concept Mapping community to open a discussion about theoretical assumptions, goals, methodologies, difficulties and strengths to gain educational benefits from this kind of distance collaboration.
