Tell us a bit about yourself

I'm an Austinite and former UT grad with a passion for technology, education, and business.

Why are you interested in education technology?

Education is a fundamental pillar of society that contributes directly to the kind of citizens that we become and in large part determines the strength of our communities. Unfortunately here in the US I see a higher education system that is high cost, full of bad actors, and not very attuned to changes in the general economy and job markets. I think technology can play a role in reshaping our higher ed system and transform the way we educate, train, and retrain our fellow citizens. There is big disruption afoot already in areas like adaptive learning, interactive textbooks, massive open online courses (MOOCs), etc. I want to explore how I might be able to contribute to these growing movements.

Introduction

Hey everyone, it's Travis here, I'm really interested in how technology influences education and the disruptions taking place across the field. I would love to connect with ATXers who are active in this space!
