Jeremiah (Remi) Holden is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying with Dr. Kurt Squire. Before attending UW and joining the Games+Learning+Society Research Group (GLS), Remi taught math at MS 22 in New York City and co-founded the Voice is Power Academy. Later, while directing civic engagement initiatives for high school students throughout the five boroughs, he developed pedagogies for the use of mobile devices to support place-based learning and political advocacy. These two experiences greatly inform his current research and teaching which focuses on how educators design technologies and pedagogies in support of place- and games-based learning.
Central to his studies is Remi’s work as an educator. Currently he is a math methods instructor and supervises pre-service math teachers with the University of Wisconsin’s Elementary Education Program. He also teaches with the University of Michigan-Flint’s Technology in Education: Global Program, a program for educators earning a Master’s degree in educational technology with an international focus. Through both programs Remi works at the intersection of design and teacher education, assisting teachers as they develop connections with local communities, playful pedagogies, and issues of global significance.
