I am a researcher (and professor) at the Faculty of Education in the University of Cantabria, being Game Studies my main research field. If you are passionate (as I am) about games, research and education, you just came to the right place!
After finishing my M.A. in Instructional Design at California State with a Fulbright Scholarship, I returned to Spain. Since then I have worked for the Department of Education, directed the Fundación Botín educational program and finished my Ph.D. with the thesis “Design of Game Experiences to Promote Civic Competence.”
A teacher at heart, I have worked at all stages of the educational system (kindergarten to university) in Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. I have helped teachers through Easyyeah.com and before that I launched with some friends Ekomind.com a site to promote sustainable consumption through games.
Here, talking a little about videogames and education as part of the exhibition that we recently organized at University of Cantabria.
