“We are at the intersection of education, technology and learning science and
ready to go forward,” explained Dr. Bror Saxberg, Chief Learning Officer at
Kaplan, Inc., speaking at the Microsoft CEO Summit on a panel about Innovation
in Education.

student needs;how most subject matter experts are only able to share a
portion of their knowledge effectively, limiting the effectiveness of many
instructors when they teach or design courses;andthe role thatcognitive
science and technology can play in improving learning outcomes.

Saxberg’s comments were delivered at Microsoft’s 16^thAnnual CEO Summit held
last week in Redmond, WA. He was part of a panel discussion moderated by
