I am a researcher in the fields of Educational Technology and Human Computer Interaction and I have been adjunct lecturer in several academic departments in Greece. I have participated in several research projects such as “Future class”, “Kaleidoscope: Concepts and methods for the exploration of future learning with ICT”,”Ε42, Postgraduate education in the pedagogical exploitation of ICT in Secondary Education” etc. but I have also hold managerial position in a Food Bar Chain! My portfolio contains some distinctions such as performance scholarship in my postgraduate studies, a study scholarship, a best archival papers award in HCI2009, a best quality paper award (IADIS 2012), an award for my teaching practices (image). The last months, I also wrote thousands of lines with HTML, JQuery & CSS, very refreshing experience. Some even more useless info:

Why useless info?

Because labels externalize a very small portion of your potential, your identity, your personality, your capabilities, your vision, your passion. If you disagree, please try to teach at a classroom, manage to empower each student separately and then decide if prior labels reveal the true story. As Morcheeba sing “Once a label is on something, It becomes an it, Like it’s no longer alive, It’s like a loss of vision, Or some dark impression, Or a black spot on your eye”
