Thanks to the tireless work of a great team of volunteers, we have a wonderful event planned for Thursday, 11/10 entitled "Education: Designing for Social Change."
 
Speakers
 
Jason Rosoff, Lead Designer for the Khan Academy.
 
Jason started out as a volunteer for the Khan Academy after getting fired up by the mission of bringing a world class education to anyone anywhere. Since then, he’s worked with an awesome team to define a unique student-driven learning experience on the Khan Academy. He’s also working to grow that team with designers to help imagine a future for education and build it. Previously, Jason spent 4 years learning about building great products at Fog Creek Software and led the design team. (Click here to see a TED talk about Khan Academy)

Jeanne Hoel, Sr. Education Program Manager at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
