An EFL teacher  and teacher developer  for over 15 years. After coordinating a language institute for 9 years, I've decided to share my recent web explorations by helping other teachers better integrate technology and education. Since 2006, I've joined an online community of educators "Learning with Computers" , have attended online workshops (Webheads) , have been co-facilitator of two EVO sessions (2008 - 2009) and have been sharing my "discoveries" and trials at my blog "Life Feast" . I've written an e-book "Webtools , applied to teaching" (English and Portuguese version) where I describe 20 webtools with practical examples of classroom usage. I've also designed different online courses for EFL teachers, e.g.  "Cultura EDtech" , "Moving Beyond", "Ferramentas Digitais", "MLearning EFL". I have also developed research in the field of  teacher development in online environments. My M.A. thesis was about how students and teachers live social presence in online courses. In 2015, I founded Connectme Education which organizes online and blended courses for teachers.
