About Krystèl Yaacoub

Born in Lebanon, I graduated from college at the age of 18 and pursued my higher education at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik - USEK where I majored in Education. Following a Bachelor degree in education (Elementary School Teacher), I discovered my passion for ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in Education. This motivated me to pursue my Master studies in Technology in Education and write my thesis on the impact of new technologies in the teaching and learning process, especially in pre-school. I graduated in March 2014 as an Educational Technologist with distinction (very good) from the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik - USEK. Currently, I am applying for my PhD in the same field at the Lebanese University.

A creative, highly motivated Educational Technologist skilled in creating digital educational materials (games, quizzes, exercises, presentations, videos etc.) and managing the integration of technology in an educational environment (Organize EdTech sessions, equip with technology tools, deliver EdTech workshops, etc.). Get to know my work by clicking here.

In the same context of technology and social media, I created TechnologyEDUC, a personal blog that provides teachers with Tips, Tutorials, Guides, Resources, Educational Software, Educational Apps and ideas of Digital Activities for the best integration of technology in the classrooms. A Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Instagram account, a LinkedIn page and a Youtube channel are also linked to the website. All the contents are prepared and posted by me. 

Exercising after a long day is a great stress reliever. I practice fitness exercises 3 times a week because a fit body is a fit brain.

I started as a girl scout at the age of 6 and then became a cub scout den mother for 2 years, I organized several camps, trips and adventurous activities. It was one of the best experiences in my life. I learned how to believe in myself, to be independent and to live peacefully with nature.
