Our team

We are a team of five graduate students in the Educational Technology Master’s program at Concordia University. Together, we have designed a workshop on Health and Wellness as part of the Discover Technology (DiscoTech) series in the Introduction to Media in Education course taught by Dr. Giuliana Cucinelli.

The aim of our workshop is to raise awareness on an important topic: health.  Join us and discover that with simple habit adjustments–with a little help from technology– you can improve your lifestyle and live better.

We believe that health and wellness are the pillars of well-being, and prevention is key. When we are healthy, everything works well! Once health is gone, we realize how important it is. Without it, life stagnates and it impedes us from moving forward.

We also believe that simple technologies can help educate people on healthy habits. This is why we explored the use of desktop and mobile applications which are accessible, useful and fun, whether you are an expert or a novice.
