Lisa Guernsey


Tell us a little about yourself I'm director of the Early Education Initiative at New America, a think tank in Washington, DC., and I'm also directing a nascent initiative here called the Learning Technologies Project. I'm associated with the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading through a project called Seeding Reading: Investing in Children's Literacy in the Digital Age, which is examining how new technologies could be harnessed to support parents and educators in early literacy efforts.

What Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Community are you a part of? If not a current GLR community member, choose GLR Staff or Consultant, Partner Organization, Funder or Incoming Community. INCOMING COMMUNITY
