I am working to build technology to help students develop the foundational skills (e.g., reading for understanding and retention) that make higher order thinking and lifelong learning possible. I have a cofounder who did his PhD in cognitive thinking and has been in education for 15 years and a founder of a private school which we are using as a "Bell Labs" for our products. We are seeking to expand our technology team. , ,I have always been interested in social change, having spent time at a microfinance startup a few years ago. As the internet and connected devices continue to advance globally, I believe leveraging tech is the best way to achieve scalable social change. In the U.S., education is one of the few industries that technology has not been able to penetrate meaningfully, but I expect that to change in the next 5-10 years.
