About myself


Daniel K. Schneider was a former associate professor at TECFA, a research and teaching unit in the faculty of psychology and education, University of Geneva. Holding a PhD in political science, he has been working in educational technology since 1988 and participated in various innovative pedagogical and technological projects. He has been a prime mover towards the introduction of creative pedagogical strategies and ICT technologies. His long-term R&D interests focus on modular, flexible and open Internet architectures supporting rich and effective educational designs. His current interests include digital design and fabrication (e.g. 3D printing), collective intelligence, student monitoring/learning process analytics, e-learning competency and learning with technology in informal settings (e.g. citizen science). Within TECFA's "blended" master program in educational technology (MALTT), he taught educational information & communication systems, foundations of educational technology, "making", and research methodology. He retired in July 31 2020, but continues working as a consultant.

I am the initiator and coordinator of this wiki and will continue this work after my retirement (July 2020).
