In January 2020 I visited the
BETT Show for the sixth time.
Since 2009 my main areas have been working with ICT in education, e-learning, online courses, social media and mobile learning. I have worked with companies, public administration, organizations and especially with educational institutions - from elementary to higher education. I am also well-known for this blog and slides, which have been viewed for more than one million times.
My previous work experience includes working at the School of Professional Teacher Education OAMK, the Brahea Centre at the University of Turku, Center of Educational Technology at the City of Tampere and at the Faculty of Education in the University of Tampere. Our unit at the university educated, researched and developed processes for learning, counselling and evaluation in work communities. At that time I specialized in problem-based learning, co-operative learning and learning at work.
