Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I have been in education for almost 20 years.

Together with a colleague of mine, we have been running a language institute since 1990. We've been developing courses for adult students who need English for their professional development.

We are also in charge of the design and implementation of the English curricula for a primary and secondary school here in Uruguay.

I love technology and think of it as an excellent tool for education. We have adapted the Moodle platform to support our students (, we are using Microsoft Live@edu to provide online communication and collaboration with our students. We have also been using virtual environments for meetings with our students or virtual conferences.

 I have started using Second Life but haven't devoted enough time to it. I'm taking some courses on using wikis for education. And since Uruguay is implementing the one laptop per child program we are trying to implement some virtual environments and educational networks for kids and teenagers.
