About Me: Jim Pedrech

I am the Innovation and STEM Consultant for the London District Catholic School Board in Ontario, Canada. My goal is to help teachers create rich and meaningful learning experiences for students.

I am particularly interested in the role technology, especially video games, can play in education. In collaboration with my students, I have created video games designed to teach students about ancient Egypt, Victorian England, Ancient Egypt, and even grammar. Yes, grammar. If you have ever wanted to battle grammatically challenged super-villains, now is your chance.

Experimenting with video games in education led to some consultant work with Epic Games and the opportunity to train and support teachers around North America via I2e.

I have presented at conferences in Toronto, Ottawa, Seattle, Monterey, New Orleans, Salzburg, and Budapest.
