Who am I?

For more than 4 years I was an EFL teacher in the Portuguese Navy and involved students in ICT activities for English language learning.
During that time was able to develop some e-activities that you can access here http://virtual-waters.tripod.com/workingstudents.htm.
I hold a great passion for teaching and learning, and I also love to work with educational technologies. I am now working at the University of Salford, where I assist and provide guidance to teachers and staff in the use of technology.
I am also an active member of an online CoP – the Webheads in Action. http://www.webheads.info/.
