Louisa Rosenheck

Director of Learning Design, Kahoot! & Instructor, Harvard University Graduate School of Education

Lisa taught with me at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, bringing her rich knowledge of ed tech design and implementation in schools. She is a wonderful collaborator and thought partner in terms of the instructional design aspects and running the logistics of the course. More importantly, she skillfully supported students and pushed their thinking on what good education technology can accomplish, and all the considerations that schools must take into account. She has a deep understanding of the K12 ed tech ecosystem that added so much value to the course!

"Lisa wrote about an educational technology curriculum project on media making that she herself designed and taught to students. It provided an example of the kind of teaching and learning that helps students see the power of technology for positive purposes, and their own power to make a positive difference."
