Hans de Zwart is the Senior Innovation Adviser for Global HR Technologies at Shell International and an independent educational strategist. In the past he was Shell’s Blended Learning Adviser, before that a Moodle consultant for Stoas Learning and he started his career as a Physical Education teacher at a highschool in Amsterdam.
He operates on the intersection between technology (which he prefers to be “open”) and education. He believes that technology is never neutral and that design matters. He wished he was the first one to write that “technology creates feasibility spaces for social practice” (he wasn’t…).
You can always come and talk to him about: the most recent book you have read, juggling, philosophy, his work on the board of the Dutch chapter of the Internet Society, free software, dominoes, his guest speaking for digital rights activists Bits of Freedom or The Big Lebowski.
