I’m professor at the University of Lisbon since1988. I earn a degree in Psychology and a PhD in Educational Sciences in the area of Curriculum and Evaluation with a thesis about What Teachers Think and How They Use ICT in their Practices. I has been teaching different educational technology subjets and my research is in the field of “learning, curriculum & technology”, and in the field of “professional development of teachers to integrate ICT tools in the curriculum”. I have several publications in these areas, some of them in english, which could be accessed in my professional website. I’m co editor of the first scientific online journal on the field of ICT in education and training published in Portugal (http://eft.educom.pt) and I’m member of the editorial board of other scientific international journals like the Digital Education Review (http://greav.ub.edu/der) or E-Curriculum (http://revistas.pucsp.br/index.php/curriculum). I coordinated the Portuguese teams of different European projects in the area of pedagogical use of ICT, including projects like PEDACTICE about evaluation of educational multimedia, IPETCCO about innovative teaching practices and DIGIFOLIO about electronic portfolios and teachers professional development and TACCLE2 – Teachers’ Aids on Creating Content for Learning Environments). For the Ministry of Education of Portugal I recently coordinated the national study about ICT Teachers Competencies and leaded the team who developed the Learning Outcomes in the area of ICT. Also I had been the national coordinator of the Distance Learning Project for Itinerant Students till 2013.
