Starting to blog to the world

Hello world,

I am really excited about blogging outside of my school walls. Everything I blogged or shared was limited to the school audience... but no more!

First of all, "allow myself to introduce... myself" (for all of you Austin Powers fans).

My name is Juan De Luca and I work as a Digital Literacy Coach in the American School Foundation in Mexico City. I have been involved in education for the past 11 years. The last few I have worked in Educational Technology, and I love it. I am (proudly) an Apple Distinguished Educator and a Google Apps for Education Qualified Individual, waiting for Trainer Certification at the moment.

I have two main roles in my job: technology integration in the classrooms and teacher training. In the first, I plan and execute projects with teachers from K-12, using technology to enhance the T&L process. Even though it is difficult going from a Kinder to a High School class, it's really satisfying and makes me stay updated.

Training teachers about new technologies is my second job. Trainings include everything from web browsing, iLife and iWork, MS Office and Google Apps.

Last but not least, I also do consultation and keynote speaking. If you are interested, don't hesitate to contact me: juan@juandeluca.com
