Hello, world!

I’m Alisa Acosta—an experienced educator with a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning from the University of Toronto. Since 2011, I have been investigating powerful new ways of teaching and learning with technology, including the design of learning analytics, intelligent agents, immersive simulations, tangible media, and “smart classroom” architectures to support collaborative learning in face-to-face contexts.  

I am currently the Director of Education for the Blockchain Research Institute. The Blockchain Research Institute is conducting the definitive research on the impact of blockchain technology on business, government and society.  A major part of my role is to mobilize this research via educational programming and enterprise-level learning opportunities.
