Ruben Puentedura, Ph.D.
Hippasus
Board Member since 2012

Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura is the Founder and President of Hippasus, an educational consulting firm focusing on transformative applications of information technologies to education. The basis for Hippasus is to be found in Dr. Puentedura's eighteen years of work in educational research and reform. While a teaching fellow at Harvard University, he codeveloped new courses in the introductory sciences, aimed at increasing the breadth and depth of science understanding for majors and non-majors alike. This work resulted in a Phi Beta Kappa teaching award, as well as his being named a Harvard Technology Fellow. Over the next twelve years, as a faculty member at Bennington College, and as the Director of the College's New Media Center, Dr. Puentedura designed and implemented new models for teaching that made exemplary use of new media and networking technologies. Finally, as an active participant in the Vermont Common Core Initiative educational reform process, Dr. Puentedura has worked to bring to K-12 education the research that has informed the rest of his work.
