My first name is Esterina but I prefer Ester. I am an EFL teacher and I live in Italy,I teach in a secondary school. I do love technology and new ways of learning and teaching;I can be considered a stroller of the net, in fact I adore visiting educational sites, online libraries/ museums and experimenting different tools, when I leave the computer I feel really very tired.I have approached to distance learning since 1999 when I started to follow a yearly course at Florence university about research and evaluation of online didactic resources. After that I attended a Master at the same university and different courses: in Ireland a two week training course for teachers called Untangle the web and various online courses like Webhead, Images4Education,Microsoft training days. I only have a blog with online didactic resources for my students and participate to the development of a national project named SOS studenti (Indire ANSAS)
