Ten years ago, when students at Glen’s school were provided with laptops, Glen was unprepared for the disruption. This inspired him to reclaim his role in the classroom and harness the power of digital technology for learning. While pursuing his studies at Drew University, he reinvented his approach to teaching and learning by discovering how to use technology to inspire conversations that make the study of the humanities meaningful.
“My first experience with the power of educational technology happened the summer of my freshman year of high school. Previously, I was a bad student, and then my dad brought home a personal computer and my life changed. I could read what I wrote, I could move thoughts on screen, my grades skyrocketed, and I realized I have a brain. Let’s find the right tools for our students, so that they can tap into their many talents, so as to help them secure a bright future.”
