Ivan is concerned with how technology can enable us to build a better, fair and sustainable future. His current research interests are in Computer Science Education, Communities of Practice and Collaborative Learning. He is also passionate about Web Development.
Houda’s passion for integrating technology in education has led her to pursue her Master’s in Educational Technology at Concordia University, following a career path as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse and a Nursing Instructor. Driven by her innate love and enthusiasm for tinkering and making, Houda has joined Education Makers to research and develop 3D fabrics and embedded wearable prototypes. She interrogates what these new plastic composites mean for everyday life and how our skin interacts with them.
