Bio

Suzanne Lettrick, M.Ed. is an academic coach and entrepreneurial leader in real world learning. In 2000, she founded the organization G.L.E.A.N. providing teenagers the opportunity to study global issues in diverse regions of the planet. Topics researched include reindeer herder wisdom in Mongolia, the renewal of the Jewish community in Berlin, and medicinal practices of the Kalahari Bushmen. Her co-guides have included writers for National Geographic and the Economist. Since July, Suzanne has researched the entrepreneurial mindset of Arab youth in the Middle East to further understand the global complexities young people face. She is now developing a concrete mechanism that literally bridges the school-to-work divide to enable all youth to engage in multiple forms of meaningful, real world learning. This work—along with her 2011 Harvard University thesis entitled, “A New Architecture for Learning” synthesizing research in neuroscience, architecture, technology, and education--brings her to this Learning Summit.
