Digital Inclusion Campaign Manager
Drew is committed to building pathways to digital access and digital literacy. Through his participation in a series of related projects, from managing a multi-state digital literacy initiative under the BTOP program to researching the ways locally responsive programming shape the digital literacy acquisition process to tutoring clinic patients in a health related technology training project, Drew has been lucky to see first hand the positive impact that learning to use technology can have on adults lives. He believes that as technology becomes increasingly embedded in everyday tasks, the importance of creating opportunities for everyone to have access and training only grows.
Drew comes to NTEN from the Literacy, Language and Technology Research group at Portland State University. In past lives he has worked as a line cook and as a seller of cookbooks. Drew spends free time cooking with friends, reading, learning to play squash and tinkering with stereo electronics.
