Arana Shapiro has been working in the field of education for ten years. She is a founding member of The School at Columbia University. Her desire to bring new media technologies into the classroom
prompted her to migrate from the classroom to the technology
team at The School and later to the lead educational technologist
position at the Ross Institute, where she integrated technology
into K–12 classrooms at both the Ross School in East
Hampton and the Ross Global Academy Charter School.
