Change is the only constant in life. Some changes just happen, but there other changes that we decide to make. Some changes may have a minimum effect, but other changes can determine your future.
Today two important events are taking place in my life, and I am here to share them with you.
Welcoming a new chapter of my life
I have known for a very long time, that I want to devote part of my time to the improvement of formal education. Three years ago, I confirmed that technology was a key factor that needed to be taken into account.
In order to achieve this goal, I have been working at Universitat Pompeu Fabra as a researcher in the Research Group on Interactive & Distributed Technologies for Education during the last three years. I have been working for the promotion of Digital Literacy and the Maker Education among students and educators to develop the 21st-century digital skills among primary and secondary education students.
Nevertheless, in order to continue improving as a researcher, I decided I wanted to make a change in my career. This is why (and here is where the big news come) today I have started working at the Pädagogische Hochschule Zürich pursuing a Doctorate on Education in the Research Group on Education and Digital Transformation.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, I find myself quarantining working from home as the procedure requires for those persons coming from other countries (among them, Spain). Nevertheless, I am excited to be starting my Doctorate even from a moderate-sized room in an Airbnb apartment in Zurich!
I believe this new position will be a key factor for achieving my goal of becoming a better researcher and professional in the field of education to be able to successfully contribute to its continuous improvement.
Welcoming my website
And continuing with great news, I also want to use this post to welcome my first and unique personal website! (I am sorry some sections are still under construction, I will do my best to have it ready ASAP! )
Being this my first post, I have endeavoured to use this website to share information about myself, as well as to share with everyone who is interested, several topics related to education, technology and digitalization.
Having said this, please, feel free to browse this website as well as contacting me.
Enjoy your day! 😊
