Edthena is excited to announce the addition of Shane Martin to our Education Advisory Board. Martin is dean of Loyola Marymount University’s School of Education and state commissioner to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
The Edthena Education Advisory Board ensures that we receive highly-qualified, outside opinions on the direction of our development. Other members include distinguished individuals like Deborah Ball, dean of University of Michigan School of Education, and Jeff Wetzler, executive vice president for innovation at Teach For America.
“Decades of research have demonstrated that video is an effective tool for teacher learning. Edthena has developed an innovative approach that helps any organization adopt video and use it in meaningful ways,” said Martin. “Their potential for large-scale impact on how we prepare and support teachers is clear to me.”
“Edthena is focused on building tools to facilitate feedback, so having additional feedback on our own product and company strategy is in service of continually increasing our own effectiveness,” said Adam Geller, CEO of Edthena.
Martin is also a member of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Board of Examiners. He received the National Catholic Educational Association’s Michael J. Guerra Leadership Award in 2005, the Catherine T. McNamee, CSJ, Award in 2009, and the Loyola High School Alumni Association’s Cahalan Award in 2008.
