Chris Dede is currently conducting funded studies at Harvard University to develop and assess learning environments based on virtual worlds, augmented realities, transformed social interaction, and online teacher professional development. Dede is a leader in mobile learning initiatives and has developed a widely used framework for scaling up educational innovations. From 2001 to 2004, he served as chair of the Learning & Teaching area at HGSE.

Kathy Trogolo was a founding board member and subsequently Assistant Head of the Tremont School in Weston, MA, collaborating with professionals and families to establish a new progressive school focused on student ownership of learning through an engaging individualized curriculum in an environment that celebrates academic, social and emotional growth. She brings her startup experience, marketing and technical backgrounds, strategic planning skills, and love of teaching and co-creating to the Fasility team. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Cornell University and a Master of Arts in Educational Technology Leadership from The George Washington University.

Scott Greenwald is a research scientist working on learning and education in virtual reality. He is investigating how spatial knowledge and intuition in areas of science such as physics, biology, and chemistry can be acquired through room-scale, motion-tracked virtual interaction. Scott's work has been featured by Games for Change at the Tribeca Film Festival, the New York Times and the Augmented World Expo. He holds a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and German from Northwestern University, a master's in Scientific Computing from the Free University of Berlin, and a master's in Media Arts and Sciences from the Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT.
