Hi, I’m Matt Curinga. I write software, research digital media, and teach in the educational technology program at Adelphi University.

My recent research looks at software design and the potential for coding digitally supported commons (in papers like the forthcoming The MOOC and the Multitude). As an instructional designer and programmer, I’ve been building PyTutor, a web platform for studying computer programming (in python) which incorporates aspects of wikis, version control, and test suites for authoring questions; with social networks for peer tutoring. As an educator I have been focused on teaching computer science as a critical literacy: at the graduate and undergraduate level, and recently as a LEGO Robotics coach and teacher of an after school programming class for kids.
