Professional Development

A lot of time has been devoted to my personal Professional Development and only in the last two months.

Many courses were available f2f and online. In this post you will find a summary of what I have been doing.

After finishing Peer Coaching program of Microsoft I enrolled in Intel Teach Essentials Course also offered by Fundación Evolución a non-profit organization in Argentina that promotes and develops programs and educational projects to incorporate ICT´s in schools.

Cristina Velazquez was our teacher and I attended 11 sessions of 3 hours. There I met a lot of Teachers of English willing to incorporate technology into their daily practise. I was so glad that Nelba Quintana form La Plata joined me and we had a lot of fun together.

 On tuesday nights at 11 o´clock once my daughters are sleeping I discovered Women of Web 2.o to be a great group sharing and discovering their knowledge on how to use tools of the Internet. My first session was unforgettable because I even spoke on Skype with the presenter. My delicious account increases everytime I join them. There is so much going on in this one hour talk. I really recommend you to join them.
