Mexican (and Spanish speaker, sorry for my probably weird English).
I’ve been working at a private university in Guadalajara, México, for several years mainly (but not only) in the area of education+technology. From an e-learning project I worked at the Latin America Association we belong, I’ve got a special interest in exploring web based communities of learning- practice, and web based distance collaboration and production. I am trying to take those interests to my phd studies (at Oberta de Catalunya, which is also a distance web-based program).

So, what is Lightstalkers for you?

I am Gabriela OrtizMichel, a University teacher interested in studying the social aspects of technology, and a photographer lover. Some year ago I did a small school research on LS as a community and some of you helped me a lot, among other things, answering a question on what is Lightstalkers for you?.
Several years have passed and I am now interested in updating my little research.
I will appreciate if you could help me contributing to this post, where I will like to introduce the conversation in a similar way to years ago:

I propose you to share with one-another in this thread what is Lighstalkers for you:

why you are here, how it helps with your day to day work, how it helps with your professional learning and development, what do you like about LS or what not, etc.

Whatever you find relevant to share!

I think this sharing is also a nice opportunity to reflect on the community together to keep it bonded.

Thanks again to all!
Gabriela :-)

(1)I need your permission to use and process the information you share here, which I will understand I have (and will be very grateful) if you answer the post.
(2) If I arrive to a paper for this updating, I will also be honored to share the new results.
(3) Years ago I shared the final paper of that research with Shinji and some people I interviewed then. Anyone interested on that old paper, just let me know. The text is in Spanish.
