She is the co-founder of Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory, HASTAC (“haystack”), a network of innovators dedicated to new forms of learning for the digital age. She is also co-director of the $2 million annual HASTAC/John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition.

She blogs regularly on new media, learning, and innovation on the www.hastac.org website as “Cat in the Stack” as well as on www.dmlcentral.com and Psychology Today.com.
