Brandon Zoras

Science Teacher in Toronto, Canada

I am a science teacher within the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) as well as a graduate of Masters of Education in Urban Education at OISE/University of Toronto. I am certified in Biology, Chemistry, and Science having completed my double major honours bachelors of science in Biochemistry and Psychology at University of Toronto. During my B.Ed. I was included in the Inner City Cohort option which looked at ways to improve learning experiences of underserved students within urban communities. With a strong interest in Urban Ed. I applied for a Masters of Education, specifically to the Urban Education Cohort that stretched across three departments at OISE and part of the Centre for Urban Schooling at OISE (CUS). My experiences at OISE have greatly affected my pedagogy, practice and stance within my classroom and across one of the largest school boards in North America. I am willing to try anything out that will engage students! From edtech to hackathons to hip hop, if students are learning through that medium I am happy.

    Hackathons as a New Pedagogy

    The hackathon, a hands-on, solution-based development model with similarities to PBL, inquiry-based learning, STEAM, and design thinking, could become the ideal 21st-century learning opportunity.
