Mattias Davidsson, has a PhD in elementary particle physics from Lund University. He has been working as a high school teacher in Mathematics, Physics and the Scientific Method since 2003. Starting in 2008 he implemented a 1-1 netbook program at his school, documenting the efforts on the blog “Datorn i Skolan – pryl eller verktyg” (The computer in School – Tool or toy?), which after several years of studying and testing different methods of implementing ICT into teaching, made him part of a now widespread community of ICT-pedagogues, resulting in eg. the first TeachMeet in Sweden. He also writes articles on ICT for Datorn I Utbildningen.
Currently, Mattias is working on a project that explores novel ways to teach and learn about physics using simulation tools and gesture-based computer interfaces.
