Tanner Vea '07

After graduation, I went to work at WNET.ORG as an Interactive Producer, where I produced games and other web-based educational content for PBS national programs including Nature and Cyberchase, an animated math adventure show for children. I'm currently an Ed.D. student in Instructional Technology and Media at Teachers College, Columbia University. My research interests include using games and mobile technologies to help address educational challenges facing low-income and urban populations.

At Bard, I followed a multidisciplinary program that included anthropology, computer science, and media studies, and I hope to draw upon that experience in conducting mixed-methods research that examines educational challenges and interventions through the lenses of culture, technology, and cognition.
