Simon Zuberek Educational Technologist
As the educational technologist at the Language Resource Center, Simon helps devise creative and effective ways of incorporating technology in language classroom.
Simon received his B.A. in Germanic Studies and Political Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then went on to earn an M.A. in Germanic Studies and Second Language Acquisition, followed by an M.A. in Applied Linguistics at the University of Illinois Chicago. He is currently working on a degree in Computational Linguistics at the Graduate College at CUNY.
His academic work resides at the crossroads of formal and applied linguistics, and computer science. He is particularly interested in oral practice. Automated scoring of open-ended spoken responses, intelligent tutoring, grammatical error detection and correction, or spoken dialog solutions, are some of the classroom applications of NLP Simon has been investigating.
