I am Antonio Vantaggiato, father of two girls, now 14 & 18 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 love itself.

I currently direct the STEMmED II project: a grant from the US Dept. of Education to help & motivate¬† youngsters to study science. It is a wonderful pursuit, in which we are building infrastructure (media labs, biology labs, new learning spaces); explore new Web 2.0 technology to improve science education; enhance faculty’s professional development and help pipeline high school students onto science careers.
