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 the politics of software design. 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 media literacy: at the graduate and undergraduate level, and recently as co-founder of Zero Day Camp: a non-profit that teaches computing, and creates Free Open Source Software, tools, and curricula for (critical) computer science education.
