Event Details

 The Edmodo team invites you to join us for our next Learning About Learning event featuring Karen Cator, President and CEO of Digital Promise and former chief policy advisor for the US Secretary of Education. 

  

Karen will discuss opportunities to close the digital learning gap by advancing both access to, and use of learning technologies. How can learning technologies expand access to a quality education? What are the barriers to broad adoption? Are mobile technologies narrowing the gap? Join the discussion around these questions and more.

 

 

Featured Speaker:

 

Karen Cator is President and CEO of Digital Promise. From 2009-2013, Karen was Director of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education, where she led the development of the 2010 National Education Technology Plan and focused the Office’s efforts on teacher and leader support. 

 

 

Prior to joining the department, Cator directed Apple’s leadership and advocacy efforts in education. She began her education career in Alaska as a teacher, ultimately leading technology planning and implementation. Cator holds a Master’s in school administration from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor’s in early childhood education from Springfield College.
