Mobile Learning, VR and Instagram

Hi guys! 

It's been a while!

Here's what I have been doing in the past few months:

Researching the use of affordable VR (Virtual Reality) and the integration with class purposes for the different age ranges.

In August I took part of IV Congresso Brasileiro de Recursos Digitais na Educação (IVCBRDE)
IV Brazilian Congress of Digital Resources in Education at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie in São Paulo, Brazil.


There I presented my classroom practice of promoting students' collaboration via mobile to develop their discourse and enhance the brainstorming phase of the classes on the first day. And a hands on workshop on the last day.
The theme was:
'Mobile phones and productive classroom collaboration' 


Research that also granted me a scholarship to present at IATEFL LTSIG (Learning Technologies Special Interest Group) for the 2016 conference.
Here's the register of my experience in LTSIG blog:

As a passionate EdTech teacher, there's always an innovative approach to potentialize the learning process and to promote the inclusion of students with disabilities.

Here's the link to my research on the use of mobile resources to promote the independence of the blind or visually impaired students:

Apps for Independence and Inclusion

This case study was presented both in IATEFL Manchester in 2015 and in Seminário Amplifica_Florianópolis in 2016.

Now the blog has an Instagram account to share photos of the ongoing EdTech and mobile- based activities !
