Current Situation

My name is Maru del Campo . I'm a Mexican Psychologist, Trainer and Language Teacher born in San Luis Potosí, I'm living in Tolucain Mexico.

  • I am enabling a life long project to foster Digital Literacy and English among the Spanish Speakers in Mexico. You can see here a recording of a presentation I gave on 23th of May 2009 describing our project for the WIAOC09 Convergence or you can visit my blog to follow our progress.

The process of getting a non profit organization on board to bring DigiBridge.donated PCs has been slow, Andy Pincon's generosity has made possible this dream.

  • I am exploring blended learning and use of web 2.0 tools for instruction and learning.

I'm training Mexican teachers to deliver their content online, I don't have face to face students right now. We're exploring Second Life, Elluminate, WiZiQ and Alado as virtual rooms.

  • My latest Certificate it's focused on Connectivism and Connective Knowledge, I took it online at the Extended Education and Learning Technologies Centre, University of Manitoba (December 2008).


My practice is oriented to the Humanistic Approach or Third Force in Psychology. One of my idols is Carl Rogers.

I am one of the founders of the Mexican National Association of Human Development (ADEHUM, 2002).
I work at MMV® Centro Multidisciplinario with Children, Teenagers and Adults in the modalities of Individual Therapy, Marital Therapy, Family Therapy and Group Therapy. I have been practicing since 1983.
In some situations I join forces with Neurologists, Psychiatrist, Physical Therapists, Language Therapists or Social Workers depending on the case. I also handle psychometric tests when needed and give workshops to Private and Public organizations when it's required.

English Teacher

  • I have been teaching English as a foreign language to adult learners for over 20 years. Currently I'm training Mexican teachers to deliver their content online, I do not have f2f students right now. I am interested in collaborating with other teachers worldwide to foster Digital Literacy and English Language among Hipanoamerican Communities and do this at Becoming an e-Learner and BaeL.

Promoting Technology

  • In my free time, I help teenagers and adults become aware of the benefit of using integrating web 2.0 tools for online instruction and learning. I am doing this on a voluntary basis as part of my apostolate because I am passionate about sharing my learning and would like to see e-Learning reachable and free for the Spanish Speaker Community. I believe collaboration and sharing are crucial to enable Digital Literacy and English, hence improving our chances to get a better life quality. We are starting with Learn Free computer tutorials and English course. The site in Spanish is Aprende Libre
  • I co-founded the SLExperiments Group, with Nergiz Kern and Alicia Barbitta. We meet in Second Life every Friday at 11 AM SLT/PDT (18:00 GMT) Headquarters. You can check our agenda and join any time. My SL ID is Mmvcentro Jewell, please befriend me to offer teleport.

Healthy Living

  • I practice Vipassana Meditation, Meditacion Vipassana. They give free face to face courses, whether you are taking a 10 days or 3 days course, your lodging expenses are also provided for free. They have Meditation Centers all over the world.
