I am happy to join this eduspace as a five years old edublogger... My name is Mario. I'm involved in approximately forty projects where social software is used as learning strategy with Opossum, learning and technology division (a subsidiary of iXmédia group), wtih I started out an experimentation at school I was principal few years ago, Cyberportfolio at Institut St-Joseph. At that time, after teaching Elementary and High School level and leading activities, I was appointed Head of a school, position which I held for 15 years in Elementary and High School level. Physical educator by trade, coaching has always been central in my professional life.
Actually, I advises institutions, business and Government in order to support best practices and initiate the emergence of vast "learning organizations". When I was school director, I liked so much the enterprise that has supported me in his endeavour with cyberportfolio that I became a business partner. I blog on «Mario tout de go» (fr) which eventually turned into an electronic portfolio, and I intend to expend this form of blogging in education issue with blogs farms on MT and WP... I met some of you at Atlanta and I'll do the best I can to invited other bloggers of my network in Canada and France... Many thanks to the those who made the initial setup.
