Another Mohawk professor will be joining us to speak at the Faire. Kevin Browne teaches in the Computer Science &
Information Technology programs while simultaneously completing his PhD in computer science at McMaster University. Outside of those, he founded Software Hamilton, where he reports on and organizes events for Hamilton’s tech and startup communities. He is passionate about education technology and its potential to improve educational, social and economic outcomes for individuals and society.
To that end, Kevin will be talking about an iPad application built to improve literacy skills for adult learners and the results of a study using the application. He’ll cover what led him to build this application, and why we need to start making more inclusive educational technology.
