Josh Hough

As a digital technologies educator at Ara Institute of Canterbury, Josh gets to engage and inspire young students from a wide range of schools to become innovative digital creators.

With a broad range of experience including teaching (adults and youth), software development, consulting, sales, and security, he is obsessed with finding new ways of making learning about technology as relevant, useful, and engaging as possible.

In 2018, Josh founded and helped to develop a new initiative to support senior secondary digital technologies educators from across Christchurch. He has studied both abroad and in New Zealand and holds a degree in IT and certificates in education.

He has worked with students from all walks of life, including high-flying executives and hardened criminals. No matter who he’s working with, Josh’s goal is to help them to discover the wonder of technology and how it can be used for great good.
