Dr. André Correa research question focused on "what are the pedagogical mediation skills for biology teachers to integrate ICT into their educational practices efficiently? His finds shows that pedagogical skills for teachers to encourage and motivate students supported by digital technologies are essential to promote the construction of knowledge.
Currently he is an associate lecturer at University of Santa Cruz in Bahia. He was also an associate lecturer, responsible for introducing ICT to pre-service teachers in Science Education at UNESP. He holds BSc in Biology from Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho (UNESP), master and doctoral degree in Science Education also from UNESP.
André Correa was a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Okada at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi-OU) and participated in various projects:
1.“21st century education” (by Telefonica Foundation) as part of the group COLEARNERS21,
2.“weSPOT ( working with social personal open technologies for inquiry based learning)”, responsible for the first pilot in Biodiversity in Secondary Schools,
3.OER & Social Networks, member of the Scientific Committee
Correa is currently a research collaborator of the COLEARN Open Research Network (KMi/OU).
His interests include skills and competences for the use of Information and Communication Technologies applied to science teaching for the 21st Century.
