Silvina P. Hilar is an Italian who has been teaching English since 1993. She has always had a great interest in teaching, writing, and composing techniques and has done a lot of research on this subject. She has been investigating and using mind mapping for more than ten years in order to embed it into teaching. She is an English teacher, a Certifi ed Legal Translator (English/Spanish), and has a Postgraduate degree in Education (graduated with Honors). She has been working in several schools and institutes with native English speaking students, and as an independent consultant for many international companies working as an interpreter, translator, and VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) course designer. She has always had a passion for technological devices concerning education. Former videos and cassettes were a must in her teaching lessons, and computer was, and still is, present. Her brother, Gaston C. Hillar, designed some programs and games for her teaching. Lately, she is teaching using Moodle and the Web 2.0. She believes that one of the most amazing challenges in education is bridging the gap between classic education and modern technologies. She has been doing a lot of research on multimedia assets that enhance teaching and learning through VLE platforms. She tries to embed the learning of students through new resources which are appealing and innovative for them. Thus, multimedia stimulates different thinking skills, as well as multiple intelligences. She has authored three books at Packt Publishing, which are Moodle 1.9: The English Teacher's Cookbook, Moodle 2 Multimedia Cookbook, and MindMapping with FreeMind.
