Hello! I’m Gabriel Flacks, Chief Pedagogical Officer and co-founder of linkr. I’m a Humanities Teacher, Ed Tech and Collaboration Expert, Cognitive Scientist, and Musician.
Since 2006 I’ve been a Humanities Teacher at Champlain College Saint-Lambert, Montreal, Quebec, and since 2013, I’ve served as Department Chair. During my career at Champlain, I’ve spent countless hours listening to students about their hopes for improving the way school works. In that effort, I’ve been developing a platform and community for supporting teacher and student collaboration since 2012, originally at newsactivist.com.
While exploring ways technology can make educational experience more fulfilling started as a classroom focus, this mission has ended up changing and enriching my life. I hope linkr can do the same for many others.
