The web is my natural environment. Although I had never really used a computer before 1996 (except for some occasional videogame on my father’s old IBM), I then dived into digital technologies all through my studies and professional career.
While I’m not active any more in actual web development I use WordPress websites or just pages to create teaching and learning activities.
