Technology in Transit

Student-led lunchtime presentation showcasing cool projects they are working on. Scarfe foyer from noon-1PM.

The March session is with Louai Rahal on Group Mind. Group Mind is an online tool that allow teachers to divide their students into randomly selected groups. The application takes the class list as an input and allows teachers to specify the number of students per groups. It can divide students into groups of 3,4,5,6 or 7 students. If teachers are not satisfied with the generated groups, they can regenerate the groups with one click.

Louai Rahal is a PhD student in Human Development, Learning and Culture and taught for three years in the teacher education program at UBC. He has a strong passion for computer programming and enjoy creating computer scripts that help teachers create better classroom environments. When he is not doing research or teaching, he plays computer games and sports, his favorite sport is Squash.
