My professional career started with my qualifications in environmental chemistry and marine biology, followed by working as a teacher with specialization in didactics and ‘Information and Communication Technology’ (ICT). I’m now focusing on my thesis for my Master of Arts and Social Science in ‘Adult Learning and Global Change’ (ALGC), with the working title Navigating Distributed Knowledge with the use of Web Tools.
In 2012 I've started eduToolkit a ‘Grassroots Organization’ promoting ‘Teachers Open Online Learning’ (TOOL) for Professional Development. We investigate the concept of ‘The Networked Teacher’ and find out more about ‘Networked Literacy & Fluency’ in education. Our aim is to provide a free teacher training, where the desire to learn is fully met by the opportunity to do so. This challenge is still under development and will be linked to the next iteration of eduToolkit - The Use of Web Tools in Networked Learning[#CNT12] (16/4 – 4/5, 2012) on the Peer-2-Peer University (P2PU). I'm developing our first course with help of WikiEducator called Certified Networked Teacher - The Use of Web Tools and we will use assessment through Mozilla Open Badges Project.
Activity: We have completing the first iteration of "eduToolkit - Promoting Teachers Open Online Learning" [TOOL] and will on 16/4 start "eduToolkit - The Use of Web Tools in Networked Learning" [#CNT12]. At the moment I participate as one of the co-facilitators in "Empower Your Personal Learning (for teachers)"
