Leaping over the Ditch of Digital Illiteracy - Life Long Learning by Silvia Purpuri
About the Presenter:
EFL teacher and course developer from Italy. I have been teaching English as a foreign language and Italian as a foreign language to adults and young learners since I graduated in 2002, cooperating with several schools and educational organizations. I studied in Italy first, then in Wales, where I got my CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English) and TEFL examination. I love the English and Italian languages and enjoy teaching them. I also have a passion for e-learning and I have recently worked for a fully on line university degree here in Italy: e-tutor first and project manager then. I have been working on Dokeos and followed workshops about Blackboard and Moodle (Moodle for Teachers, elementary and advanced at WiZiQ-organized by IT4All and the University of Phoenix). I have also been an online moderator twice for the annual IATEFL (Internatinal Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) Conference (in Cardiff -Wales 2008 and Harrogate - England 2009). I am currently working as a course developer and learning facilitator for a University in France and on the Moodle.
