Biography

I am PhD student and researcher. In addition, I am working as Fab Lab instructor in Fab Lab Oulu.

My research focus on how to integrate ICT innovations into learning environments in order to assist teachers into their daily tasks. My view is that teachers should be able to produce their own digital content and physical devices that fit with their teaching methodologies. I am studying how to build authoring tools for teachers to create their own learning applications. I am also investigating how Fab Lab machines and processes can be integrated into formal learning environments. 

Recently, we started a project in collaboration with City of Oulu in which I am participating training teacher in Digital Fabrication. I am also part of the Fab Academy education staff.
