Silvina P. Hillar

Silvina P. Hillar is an Italian, who has been teaching English since 1993. She has always had a great interest in teaching writing and composing techniques, and has done a lot of research on this subject. She has been investigating and using mind mapping for more than ten years in order to embed it into teaching. She is an English teacher, a certified legal translator (English/Spanish) and has a post graduate degree in Education (in which she graduated with honors). Silvina has been working in several schools and institutes with native English speaking students and as an independent consultant for many international companies as an interpreter, translator, and VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) course designer. She has always had a passion for technological devices concerning education. Former videos and cassettes were a must in her teaching lessons, and the computer was and still is present. Her brother Gastón C. Hillar designed some programs and games for her teaching. Lately, she has been teaching using Moodle and the Web 2.0. She believes that one of the most amazing challenges in education is bridging the gap between classic education and modern technologies. She has been doing a lot of research on multimedia assets which enhance the teaching and learning through VLE platforms. She tries to embed the learning of students through new resources which are appealing and innovative for them. Thus, multimedia stimulates cognitive as well as creative abilities. Silvina has also authored three books at Packt Publishing, which are Moodle 1.9: The English Teacher’s Cookbook, Moodle 2 Multimedia Cookbook, and MindMapping with FreeMind.
