GCL 2017 Argentina


I ́m very interested to promote education in no-formal places, specially for resolves local problems with technology or teach digital arts as a way to express and create innovative solutions or culture. With this goals I participate in interdisciplinary groups, such as TEDxRíodelaPlata Education (promoting educational use at talks); A.Mo.Ver (where we experiment different technologies to generate encounters between body language expressions and education, especially to help illiterate children to express themselves) and Chicas en Tecnologia (where we work to reduce the gender gap in Technology field). In my free time, I love to read books about differents themes and learn to use new softwares to create new digital artistics expressions, like Vjing. I also have a column about education every week in a radio program (called “Benditos 90” or “Blessed ́90s”) for young people, where we talk about entrepreneurship, innovation, news, politics and solidarity.
