I am currently a lead educator at Hapara, maker of Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps. For fourteen years I worked at the same traditional public high school in Redwood City. After failing accreditation in the year I was hired, we became an International Baccalaureate School that has achieved high poverty/high achievement status, and regularly makes Newsweek's list of the nation's top high schools.
I stumbled upon edtech in 1999 when our school district was awarded a Ca Digital HS grant. Mine was one of the first classrooms podcasting and using imovie in the region. Since then, I have collaborated with a Stanford University research team and incorporated a nonprofit to support the continued research our team has been conducting on the impact that formative assessment has on summative achievement.
