Alicia_PortraitI am a Native English speaker, born and bred in Trinidad and Tobago. I currently teach English, Computer Science and Digital Literacy at Lower Secondary Level in Vienna, Austria. In my role as coordinator for eLearning at my school I’ve specialised in Mobile Learning, Flipped Learning as well as Game-Based-Learning, where I focus on developing communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking with learners in personalised learning scenarios.

As an educational technologist, I conduct seminars and workshops in teaching training sessions on topics such as Mobile Learning, Blended Learning or Developing Digital Competence. I also collaborate in projects with like-minded educators in various parts of Europe, such as eTwinning, the Teacher Academy on School Education Gateway or designing and moderating MOOCs on intercultural learning. I’ve worked with the Interactive Classroom Working Group on topic of personalised learning with a special focus on creativity.

Proud to be a founding member of the @bildungspunks – a vibrant and active community of educators in German-speaking countries on twitter. More info: http://www.bildungspunks.de.
