Notes on the presenter
  • Inga Keithly, a doctoral candidate at San Diego State University in Educational Technology, is currently on sabbatical to develop her skills as a learning consultant. Her recent relocation to Boston has given her academic relationships at Harvard and MIT, and enabled her to continue researching best practices in collaboration and how educational technology can assist underserved communities. Notable highlights in her teaching career are national certification from NBPTS and teacher of the year at her local high school in Hawaii.
