I have been an EFL/ESP teacher for more than 30 years. I graduated in Language Teaching, have a Masters degree in Applied Linguistcs, and a Ph.D in Education. I am currently a Full professor at Universidad Simon Bolivar, Caracas, Venezuela where I Coordinate the Graduate Studies in Education Programs and I am the Head of the Specialization in Informatics and Education. Besides teaching technology-related courses at the graduate level, I also teach English for Architecture and Urban Planning courses. A webhead since 2002, I am now the coordinator of the TESOL Electronic Village Online and co-moderator, with Teresa Almeida d´Eça of the Becoming a Webhead (BaW) online Workshop.

This is a blog I use to keep track of Web 2.0 tools: http://dafneusb.motime.com , and this is my e-portfolio (a work in progress)

I have been an EFL teacher for 30+ years and have taught at most levels. I live and teach in the suburbs of Lisbon, Portugal. For the past five years I've been teaching 5th and 6th grades (1st & 2nd year EFLers). I love teaching and find it an even more challenging task since the arrival of ICTs. I also love computers, the Internet and interacting with friends and colleagues through chat and email. I have carried out three email cultural exchanges and have run a teacher-student blog titled "Have Fun with English!" since Nov. 2003.


I did my first exclusively online course in October 2001 with Michael Krauss. In January 2002, I joined the Webheads in Action for an online teacher development workshop, and since then I've been actively involved in the cyberworld of education. I have co-moderated the Becoming a Webhead online teacher development workshop with Dafne Gonzalez since 2004 and have also co-taught, with Dafne, PP 104: Teaching Vocabulary and Grammar Online, a credited online course that is part of TESOL's "Principles and Practices of Online Teaching Certificate Program".


I have two books published, _NetAprendizagem:A Internet na Educação_ and _O Email na Sala de Aula_, both now out of print.


I present regularly at conferences at home and abroad. I am a member of APPI (Associação Portuguesa de Professores de Inglês), the Webheads in Action, and TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages).


On 6 Dec. 2007 I received the "eLearning Award 2007" in Brussels, Belgium. My curricular blog CALL Lessons 2005-2007 won the Gold Prize in the category of "School of the Future". There's more about the award and wonderful messages from friends all over the world in the Ela07 wiki.
