Dan Meyer -
I'm Dan Meyer. I taught high school math between 2004 and 2010 and I
am currently studying at Stanford University on a doctoral fellowship.
My hobbies include graphic design, filmmaking, motion graphics, and
infographics, most of which have found their way into my practice in
some way or another. My specific interests include curriculum design
(answering the question, "how we design the ideal learning experience
for students?") and teacher education (answering the questions, "how
do teachers learn?" and "how do we retain more teachers?" and "how do
we teach teachers to teach?").
