Jose GarciaCoordinator of the training area of Citilab-Cornellà and head of the Edutec team

I started at Citilab in 2007 working in technical support. I shortly joined the training area as a trainer of the beginner levels, and giving support to groups learning on the basis of projects. I have been coordinating this area since 2011.

At around the same time, I discovered Scratch and Smalltalk from the Citilab programming team. They started working in the teaching of programming, robotics and to generally improve the world of education. I have given training programmes, workshops, the creation of materials and the dissemination in this field, both for users and for trainers. As member of the Edutec group, I developed tools to help attain this goal, such as S4A, Snap4Arduino, Snapi and Beetleblocks. I have been coordinating this team since 2012. Achievements include the co-organization of the international Scratch conferences and programming and robotics training sessions at Citilab.

I studied Telecommunications Engineering and started working in a publishing company before graduating. I acquired experience as a programmer of applications for CDs and DVDs, audio processing and video formats. I also had the opportunity of contacting many users, which has helped a lot during my time at Citilab. I later trained in computer networks, and continued self-training as a programmer.

During my time at Citilab, I have worked on the technical and learning side, in the construction of block programming tools, both for users and trainers. I am currently involved in many Citilab projects related to new ways of working with citizens, improved education and bringing technology and innovation closer to citizens.
