Joël Wealer

Instituteur spécialisé en Compétetences numériques (I-CN)

Born and raised in the northern town of Clervaux in Luxembourg, my academic ambitions led me to the US to complete a Bachelor in Business in 2010. Since then I have been pursuing my professional opportunities in the world of tech start-ups and innovation. In 2012/13, I had a chance to deepen my personal interests through an MSc in Entrepreneurship with a focus on digital media and gamification in Sweden. Lastly, I was briefly engaged with a PhD project at the Luxembourg School of Finance sponsored by the Banque de Luxembourg and focused on digitalizing social infrastructures through the Blockchain.

From 2014 until 2016 I ran my own start-up working on gamifying sports betting applications. Since then, I have been working as a consultant and project manager in the tech community in Luxembourg and abroad. Through my broadened perspective, it always came naturally me to act as a bridge between the technical team and the business side of the projects I worked with.

In 2019 I decided to shift careers and join the pool of primary teachers in Luxembourg. I am now excited to take advantage of my unique background to support the development of digital learning opportunities in Luxembourg and gamify the user experience of our primary school students.
