facebook: Claude Almansi.
Claude Almansi has been a member of Noi Media, a project advocating the use of information and communication technologies (ICT)-and Web 2.0 tools in particular-in Swiss schools, and is presently organizing director and editor of Webmultimediale, a project exploring creative applications of Web accessibility, founded by Roberto Ellero. She has taught French and English as foreign languages in middle schools, secondary schools, and universities in the United Kingdom, Italy, and Switzerland.
Almansi is also a translator who has translated texts from several fields. Earlier in her career, she concentrated on literary works and essays; in the last 10 years, her translations have focused on the use of ICT in education. Her own interest in the uses of ICT in schools arose from these translations and from the conviction that technology simplifies work, education, and life in general, and can provide significant support for equal rights for all, particularly equal rights of access to training.
Almansi earned a Licence-ès-lettres (akin to a BA) at Geneva University and a postgraduate diploma in conference interpretation techniques at the Polytechnic of Central London (now University of Westminster).
