Instructor Biography

I have been a teacher for more than 18 years and I have seen that ICT plays bigger and bigger role in education. I have been very curious about how I could use the new technology to make a better learning process for my students and it have been a journey that have taken me many places. I have been studying "ICT and Didactics in the 21st century" at the University of California Irvine, I have been reading a about the subject and been making experiments with my students, so I am convinced that I have something valuable to share with you and I am looking forward to inspire you and give you the tools you need to make an even better learning experience for your students.
