My name is Kwaku Aning (he/him) and I am:
- an educator
- a professional wonder(er)
- a connector
- an advocate for students
- looking to connect the dots between education, tech, art, agency, and the stuff that I am yet to understand
Currently, I am the Director of the Center of Innovation and Entrepreneurial Thinking at the San Diego Jewish Academy but I have had the privilege to work in various roles within public charter and private schools over the past 19 years within education. In my current and previous roles, I have had the privilege to work with students on various STEAM and Project-Based Learning projects utilizing robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and projection mapping. One of the highlights of this work occurred in the fall of 2017 when I produced four short 360 video documentaries for the United Nations on Fijian youth and the effects of climate change.
