Introduction
I am a passionate learner who loves teaching, research and innovation. I have expertise in qualitative research methods with extensive experience teaching and researching innovative uses of technology in Education. I´ve worked for twelve years (2001-2014) at the Intelligent & Cooperative Systems Research Group at the University of Valladolid (Spain), where I got my Ph.D in Educational Technology. Within this transdisciplinary team formed by engineers, computer scientist and educators, we developed a number of innovative technologies to support teachers in the complete lifecycle of collaborative learning environments. In 2009 after a two-year Fulbright scholarship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I founded the Center for Transdisciplinary Research in Education (CETIE) at t

The development of educational research designs might be daunting for novice researchers that have to make choices among the plethora of philosophical frameworks, research traditions, and different methods existing in the field. In this article we describe the process followed to formally evaluate Hopscotch, a model and a web-tool created by the au...
Chapter
This chapter provides an introduction to terminology of theoretical perspectives and their meager state evidenced in the field of K-12 online learning. Then with a discussion of the importance of theory, the authors propose a revival of theory in the field as a means to expand researcher impact on practice. By establishing evidence of a crisis of t...
Article
Technology offers rich opportunities for learning across different physical and virtual spaces. However, most of current across-spaces proposals are either highly teacher-centered, inflexible in the students’ self-management of learning artifacts during the enactment, or allow the teacher little/no control of such students’ management of artifacts....

Recent technological advances in mobile devices enable the connection of classrooms with other virtual and physical spaces. Some approaches aim at helping teachers carry out learning situations across such spaces. However, these proposals tend to be isolated from other activities in teachers’ current common practices, and do not allow teacher-contr...
Article
During the last decades, educational contexts have transformed into complex technological and social ecologies, with mobile devices expanding the scope of education beyond the traditional classroom, creating so-called Ubiquitous Learning Environments (ULEs). However, these new technological opportunities entail an additional burden for teachers, wh...

During the Spanish Second Republican government (April 1931-July 1939), there was an institutional initiative in the country called ―Misiones Pedagógicas‖, deeply based in the early Deweyan conception of Progressive Education. The aim of this project was bringing access to culture, entertainment and some sort of progress to rural areas by using med...
Article
Transforming teachers' pedagogical ideas into ICT infrastructures ready for the enactment of such ideas is a complex process, especially in the case of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). In higher education, the current trend of using external tools (e.g., "Web 2.0") along with the institutional virtual learning environments (what so...

Article
TEL situations may occur in multiple physical and virtual spaces, beyond a physical classroom or a VLE. Teaching in this kind of situations may become very complex, since the learning activities may occur across different spaces and times using diverse technologies. In order to help teachers in the orchestration of these learning situations, we pro...
Conference Paper
In CSCL, going from teachers´ abstract learning design ideas to their deployment in VLEs through the life-cycle of CSCL scripts, typically implies a loss of information. It is relevant for TEL and learning design fields to assess to what extent this loss affects the pedagogical essence of the original idea. This paper presents a study wherein 37 te...
