This is the official website of Marcus Duveskog. On this site you will find basic information about me and my life.


Who am I

I am a Swede who prefers to see myself as a world citizen. My childhood was spent between Sweden and Kenya. My early years in Kenya gave me a love for the African continent and I nowadays reside in South Africa which is also the place where I found my beautiful wife Heidi. I see South Africa as my base and Southern Africa as my main working field. I am an educational technologist with a special interest in ICT for Development. Through my research and work for University of Eastern Finland I have gained extensive experience on participatory design with youth in several African countries and contexts (Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, South Africa and Zambia). During 2016 I have been working for the project ICT4EEDU and founded the company 'Contextualize' together with my wife Heidi focusing on contextual learning solutions.
