ジェイソン ウィック 教育エヴァンジェリスト
Years of helping organizations enable digital natives through one to one laptop/tablet programs have newly opened Jason’s eyes to the opportunities provided by the Maker Toolset and Design Thinking processes. Witnessing the difference a tactile, constructivism approach makes to increase students’ creativity and problem solving intelligence is a highlight of his work.
Jason can often be found working with charitable and social entrepreneurship projects at home and abroad. He is an avid musician and father, both of which foster the growth mindset of a life-long learner.
Gabriel Wilkes EdTech Coordinator
Gabriel has been helping to design and run after-school programs and workshops for Maker Toolset for several years now. Those programs included robotics, programming, Minecraft, making arcade games out of cardboard and electronics, internet connected devices, and more. Gabriel’s love of technology goes way back. Starting with taking electronics apart and getting into BASIC programming in elementary school. In middle school he got really into robotics, artificial intelligence programming and holography.
Besides technology, Gabriel also had an early love for visual arts such as drawing, painting and photography. Now, with two daughters of his own, he’s really excited to share his creative passions with them and other children.
