I am a researcher at the Open University UK and visiting lecturer in Brazil and Portugal. My interests are innovative uses of educational technology in Science. I worked as a ICT teacher in international schools in Brazil for more then 10 years. I used the UK Science upd8 in various schools and teacher's CPD. I then moved to the UK to complete my PhD in inquiry based learning and collaborated with the upd8 team in creating learning objects and interactive content. Now I am principal investigator in three international inquiry projects: weSPOT, ENGAGE and Urban Inquiries. I am glad to participate in this community : )
