Artefact’s Masuma Henry Joins the Intel Education Accelerator

This week, Intel Education and Intel Capital announced the 2016 cohort of the Intel Education Accelerator, which provides selected companies with the opportunity to receive guidance from technology, business and education experts. Masuma Henry, Artefact’s executive director who leads our social impact work, is joining the team of renowned education experts, entrepreneurs and executives to mentor this year’s cohort.

 

Through our collaborations with education-focused organizations like DreamBox Learning and Arizona State University, as well as our own investigations, we have developed a broad perspective on how product and services may impact real students through the design of the experience. We also understand the burden that educators have incorporating technology into their teaching day to day. Lending our expertise to the Intel Education Accelerator is an extension of our mission to design towards preferable outcomes.

“A human centered design lens on edtech is indispensable to building skills we want for all learners: literacy, curiosity and self-realization,” commented Masuma Henry. “We are excited to pass our multidimensional experience with edtech users, buyers and influencers to help this innovative group of start-ups as they work to transform education.”
