NEW YORK, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 2gno.me ("To know me") today named Lynn Gershman as Educator-in-Residence and Richard Laine as Strategic Education Advisor.
2gno.me identifies strengths and gaps in knowledge and is a platform that allows you to offer personalized professional development to address those gaps. In Education, 2gno.me won a gold award at 2016 Re-Imagine Education for its approach and technology aimed to strengthen teaching skills with enhanced self-awareness and personalized professional development for every teacher!
"Most of the investment in education technology is targeting the student, often ignoring the powerful role technology can play in improving the effectiveness of teachers and principals in enhancing the learning of all students," said Ilya Zeldin, 2gno.me CEO. "Lynn and Richard understand the missing link of technology in strengthening the impact of teachers and principals. Their broad knowledge of educators, school districts, and state policy will be invaluable to expand our growth and value in the education sector."
For more than 15 years, Lynn Gershman has been a trailblazer for teachers, first as a classroom teacher and then in improving professional development to impact student learning. Now a PhD candidate at the University of Denver, Lynn aims to strengthen education through technology by finally connecting teachers' professional development to their evaluation to make the process useful to teachers and their ability to improve their students' learning.

"I am excited by the potential 2gno.me brings to enhancing the effectiveness of both teachers and principals by personalizing their professional development and doing it at scale," Laine said. "This online platform has the power and flexibility to finally enable districts to tailor PD and mentoring to each of their teachers' and principals' specific needs so they can have even greater impact on their students," Laine continued."
