Linda was born in Bogotá (Colombia) a long time ago ;-), she is “Murcianica” by adoption (Murcia, Spain). By profession I’m Educationalist, I used to be a student of musicology by hobby, (PhD) Doctor by faculty prescription, and if the majority of people say that I’m TALKative (is a euphemism, as you can try yourself), I must say that I’m also LEARNative :-).
I have done research stays in very interesting places all over the world (the KMi of the OU, the Learning and New Technologies research group of the Department of Education of the University of Oxford, the CENT of the UJI, the Graduate School of Education of the UC Berkeley, among others) and I keep in touch with many of my contacts from those stays and with many interesting people from many interesting places all over the world.
From Murcia (even when I’m mostly on the road when we are not in global pandemic times), I’m working on specific aspects of Educational Technology related to the educational perspective, BUT sometimes I’m doing explorations “on the other side” (I never know if the Tech is the “bright side of life” or the “Dark-side”).
Currently, I’m leading the national (Spanish) team of three European Projects:
- ESSENCE “Entrepreneurial skills in schools education: nurturing citizenship and entrepreneurship”

- CUTE “Competencies for Universities – using Technology in Education”
for more information go to https://cute.ku.dk/
- DALI “Data Literacy for citizens” for more info go to https://slate.uib.no/post/data-literacy-for-citizenship
Additionally, I’m working on other projects centred on:
Moreover, I have the opportunity -and the honour- to be part of the editorial board of the European Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education, as well as the editorial advisory board of the Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research, as well as the Revista Interuniversitaria de investigación en Tecnología Educativa.
