Independent Advisor ICT Learning & Digital Culture, Assessor of Social Media Tools in Educational Contexts, writer and international speaker
Introduction

Welcome to my Google + page.

I am Gina Souto, Independent Advisor on Learning & Digital Culture, writer and international speaker.

This space is where I muse all things related to Learning ICT and Social Media Tools in Educational Contexts.

I'm passionate on creating meaningful learning experiences for learners that I share on my personal blog. 

 G-Souto's Blog includes information on new learning trends, technologies and tools. 

The blog hosts a number of major resources, including:

  • Suggestions of teaching and learning in Secondary Education; Vocational Education
  • Links to articles produced by me
  • Online resources associated to my research area and writing interests

I blog on my personal blog as well as on two blogs for students: French Language; Portuguese Language.

My interests include assessment of digital educational resources, games in school, digital literacy, participatory learning and culture, linguistics studies, digital composition, personal learning environments (PLEs), e-learning, blended learning, critical pedagogy.
