Marie Bjerede, Founder
I’m a leadership and learning geek – I consult, write, and speak about how to create environments for learning and working enabled by technology platforms and self-organizing cultures. I have seen first-hand how the right technologies and approaches can be force multipliers for productivity, agency, and personalization. I work with schools to use personal, mobile devices to support students in accelerating and taking ownership of their learning. I analyze the markets and infrastructure of our education system to identify the leverage points where products, services, applications, and new practices are needed to support the transformation of schooling. And I study the infrastructure needs of a 21st century learning ecosystem to identify where those who already lead in technology and policy can further serve education. I take an unconventional approach in all these endeavors – removing constraints from systems to get bigger payoffs with less effort.
