The Tech & Learning 100@30


Bolch, Matt, Technology & Learning


AS PART OF OUR 30TH-ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION, Tech & Learning has compiled the first two of three lists of the 100 most important people: those leaders from the PAST who have shaped today's edtech environment, and those leaders from the PRESENT who have been instrumental in the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. These first 60 honorees appeared earlier this year. We now feature leaders in our last and possibly most challenging list, the FUTURE. These include students doing ground-breaking work in edtech, young entrepreneurs shaping the future of edtech, and those teachers changing classrooms around the nation. Let us know what you think at www.techlearning.com/30thanniversary.

Keith R Bujak

Keith R Bujak has researched how mobile phones and text messaging can support learning in areas where Internet connections are limited. Results of a pilot study conducted at Georgia Tech's Problem Solving and Educational Technology Lab showed that complex interactions are possible. Participants found the system easy to understand and a useful learning tool. Bujak is an engineering psychology doctoral candidate at the university and his current interests include active, constructive, and interactive learning, mobile learning, and cognitive science-based physics education.
