Research activity

Priority research areas: School Organization and Educational Supervision, Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning, Curriculum Design and Development, and Digital Language, topics on which I have published more than 300 scientific contributions. (Of which more than 100 are articles published in JCR and SCOPUS and more than 30 books as author or editor). I have supervised 13 Doctoral Theses and I have been a member of the scientific committee of 70 international conferences (United States, Canada, China, France, Italy, United Kingdom, etc.). I am being invited as keynote speaker in more than 20 conferences. Currently, he is one of the 30 most cited Spanish researchers in the area of Didactics and School Organization (Dialnet) and one of the 5,000 most cited Spanish researchers in all areas of knowledge. (Ranking 4811 in 2022. Source: https://www.webometrics.info/en/GoogleScholar/Spain).

I have recently directed two R+D+I National and European projects as PI:"Gamification and ubiquitous learning in Primary Education. Development of a map of skills and teaching, student and parent resources (GAUBI)". Ref. RTI2018-099764-B-I00. Funding source: Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.

I am the Principal Investigator of the RADTE Research Group: "Methodological strategies for the construction of a distance network of educational technology" (Grup.123) and Coordinator of the MAPE-ICT Teaching Innovation Group: "Didactic models for personalized and scalable learning through emerging technologies in ubiquitous and mobile contexts” (GID2016-24).

Professional experience

Professor of the Faculty of Education in the Department of Didactics, School Organization and Special Didactics. I have worked as a Secondary Education teacher (civil servant, n.º 1 of opposition), visiting professor in the USA (Illinois), member of management teams in different High-Schools, Educational Supervisor I (Inspectorate of Education), Tutor at UNED since 2003 and Professor at the Faculty of Education of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (2008-2011), where I taught in the Early Childhood and Primary Education degrees. Likewise, I have been Vice Dean of Students, Internationalization and Social Education of the Faculty of Education of the UNED (2017-2020).

Throughout more than twenty years as a teacher of Spanish Language and Literature in several Spanish and American educational centers, I have held different positions that have provided me with an extensive, open and varied view of the educational system. Among other positions, I have been: Head of the Department of Spanish Language and Literature, Head of the Department of Extracurricular Activities, Head of Studies, Secretary, Principal, Group tutor, Tutor of university students practicum, elected member of the school council of different educational centers, teacher and didactic advisor in Illinois-Cicero District 99 (USA), responsible for training and ICT advisor in Secondary Schools and coordinator of educational innovation projects and Erasmus programs. Subsequently, as Inspector of Education I have visited and supervised numerous schools and high schools and given training courses to inspectorates and teachers of all educational stages. In addition, I have trained future secondary school teachers in different academies in Extremadura and Madrid.

Without doubt, the most important professional background for me is having taught more than 3,500 teenagers sitting behind a desk (not always) during more than 16,000 hours of face-to-face class. Everything I KNOW about Education, I owe to them.
