Juanlusz. I was born in Mérida, Spain. It`s a beautiful old town by the river Guadiana. I have been a teacher of foreign languages for 15 years now: English, French, Spanish. Now I teach Portuguese to adults in a public school of languages , in Extremadura. I like learning about new technologies (step by step) and meeting new people. I would like to develop video production competences. I have a digital videocamera, and I have filmed sometimes, edited very little, and used video in the classroom only twice. I tried my best to avoid bold letters, but I did not succeed. I am not shouting, I comply with Netiquette. In fact, I offer you all a greeting smile.
Nick Kearney. I trained in TEFL at International House London. I then worked for six years at International House Valencia, Spain. Teaching English to all ages and levels but with a focus on ESP. Since then I have been working at an eduction cooperative outside Valencia. www.florida.es I run the language school, and am in charge of ICT/Learning across all the different educational areas of the cooperative. I have worked extensively on EU-funded projects related to what some call "e-learning". My experience in using video is limited to a few videos made for schoolkids, it was highly motivating, and that is why I am here. I am especially interested in students generating their own video content as part of their learning.
