My Story

My name is Ingvi Hrannar and I’m an Icelandic Educator, Entrepreneur, Public Speaker, Tech Coach and Lead Learner at Skagafjordur School District
My main interest are education, design, technology and sports.

Educational Philosophy

This is a working document which will never be finished.

“A connected educator is constantly saying; I do it this way right now, but is there a better way out there somewhere?”

I believe in using technology to enhance teaching and learning. I think we should increase school freedom and greatly reduce our focus on standardized testing because that narrows the curriculum. I’m a big fan of Genius Hour in schools.
