Eileen Lento, Ph.D., OTO Secretary
Director of Worldwide Strategy and Marketing for Intel Education
Currently at Intel, Dr. Lento is developing and implementing holistic models for guiding school systems along the technology adoption curve. These models recognize that such efforts demand more than simply providing students and educators with laptops. The work addresses the need for quantitative and qualitative results, visionary leadership, creative funding, rich digital content, ongoing professional development, all supported by a solid infrastructure. Additionally, she brings awareness to the need for advocacy around policies necessary for such systemic reform efforts to gain real traction (i.e., scale and sustainability). Previously, she was the Director of Learning Technologies for PASCO Scientific and an Assistant Professor of Research in the Learning Sciences, Northwestern University. Having worked on several large scale NSF and DOE projects, she is dedicated to transforming learning experiences via teaching and learning processes that take full advantage of technology so that all students can achieve the high standards essential for them to be successful. Dr. Lento has won a number of awards as well as published in several peer-reviewed journals.
