Tom Doust

Tom is passionate about the power of imagination. Through his career he has designed opportunities for people, particularly children and young people, to embrace and apply their imagination in creative, tactile and expressive ways. In order for the learner to be fully engaged, Tom believes education and learning must be playful and immersive. He draws inspiration from concepts like rapid prototyping and pedagogies like the maker movement. He is committed to social good and has only worked in the non-for-profit sector alongside stakeholders, exploring ways in which people can feel empowered to make a difference to the world around them. The iOi brings all of Tom’s passions under one roof: creativity; experimentation, design, technology and real world and interdisciplinary learning.
