Thank you for visiting my site! I am passionate about education as a means of enriching people’s lives and empowering them to reach their potential. Digital education is the most effective way to spread access to invaluable knowledge, and I am doing all I can to further this space, namely through:

  1. Creating free and affordable tools to scale learning
    I am creating a mobile application that allows everyone to both create and take courses from their mobile phone. I’ve completed the designs, and now am fundraising for the development. Please visit my Kickstarter campaign to learn more. I would be very grateful for anything you can contribute!
  2. Instructional design for numerous companies
    I work with clients across the globe to envision, design, build, and manage digital courses.

  1. Your ideals are laudable. One challenge is to provide math education in the context of what the students relate to and problems they see in their lives. In other words, a problem solving approach customized to the social/need context of the students may be considered. Technology may make the customized teaching platforms scalable across a wide geographic area. In other words, students in upper middle class suburban communities may be excited about a different set of math problems than than children in poor inner city communities.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I absolutely agree that the background and culture of individual students affect how they best learn math. I think this is one area in which we must rely on teachers and local education authorities. They know the students better than curricula-writing companies far away. But as far as I know, the use of iPads is accompanied by pre-written curricula. There should be an easy way for teachers to design their own curricula and program it into the iPad or other such technological tool.
