My name is Azael Barrera, professor or physics and mathematics with the academic program of Florida State University in the Republic of Panama. I joined C2.0 to share my experience with the use of technology in teaching and learning and education research to help improve active learning in difficult subjects as precalculus, analytic trigonometry and calculus-based physics and other sciences. Before joining FSU @ Panama I was Technology Development Director for the National Office of Science and Technology of Panama, where I implemented the first internet access community centers throughout Panama, a national program called Infoplazas which started in Feb. 2000 with 25 local schools and communities working together. Now Panama has 220 such centers. I shared that experience with other countries like Venezuela, Ecuador, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Egypt, as a consultant for UNESCO. Also created the Center of Research of Technology for Education with $1.2M support from South Korea (later closed due to bad retroactive public policies). I have used many different technologies to enhance inquiry in the classroom, integrating experiments intersped with lectures with discussions and problem solving in a method called Studio Teaching, using tablet pcs and netbooks, smart sensors with portable data acquisition devices, lecture capture technology, video motion analysis and many other educational technologies. I am glad to be in this social network. I will begin soon sharing my experience with tablet pcs in the classroom to teach trigonometry -I am writiing a research paper on that subject- and many other things.
