Lisa Schmucki is the Founder & CEO of edWeb. She developed the idea for edWeb 10 years ago when she saw how social networking technology could help educators connect and collaborate and break down the silos and traditional barriers that have existed in education. edWeb is now an award-winning global professional learning network that helps educators connect and collaborate online to make learning more engaging, supportive, and effective for all students. edWeb is free for all educators (teachers, librarians, administrators) thanks to the sponsorship of leading education companies and non-profit organizations.
