“Education doesn’t need to be reformed it needs to be transformed” - Ken Robinson
A quote I first heard during my internship abroad at Elewa, a company striving to offer quality education at all schools in Kenya even those from less fortunate areas. Working in collaboration with schools in Kenya was truly an eye-opening experience for me. Technology can be used to improve education for everyone everywhere, and better education gives everyone a more equal chance for a better future.
This is the thought driving me during my research as a PhD student in the field of technology-enhanced learning at the WISE lab under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Beat Signer and as a volunteer at HackYourFuture Belgium. In my research I am mostly focused on the creation of personalised learning environments based on knowledge graphs, ontologies and adaptive systems.
