I am Antonio Vantaggiato, husband, father of two girls, now 19 & 23 yo., and professor of computer science at Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

My main interests are: Web 2.0 and new media in education, plus an ancient love for photography, music, literature and noir novels.

I just ended direction of the STEMmED project (2009-2016): two grants from the US Dept. of Education to help & motivate¬† youngsters to study science. It was a wonderful pursuit, in which we built infrastructure (media labs, biology labs, new learning spaces); explored new Web 2.0 technology to improve science education; enhanced faculty’s professional development and helped pipeline high school students onto science careers.
