Vanesa Olsen is a Speech Therapist. She has been working for more than six years in therapeutic centers, schools and hospitals. She has been applying modern technologies in language disorders and learning disabilities treatments, and in helping schools to keep the students in the least restrictive environment. Specifically, she has been working with Alice 3, Moodle as an e-Learning platform, and other tools. She combined this software with the usage of Web 2.0 and general purpose modern hardware as gamepads, pen sketches, touch screens, netbooks, tablets, smartphones and joysticks. She enjoys helping children and teenagers to improve their skills.
She has written another book for Packt Publishing, Moodle 1.9 for Teaching Special Education Children (5-10): Beginner's Guide.
She lives with her husband, Gaston, and his little son, Kevin. When she is not working she devotes her spare time to her family and hobbies. She enjoys modeling in cold porcelain, swimming and researching about new technologies and techniques to apply in her treatments.
