Lawrence Swiaderhas spent his career studying the intersection of technology, media, education, and how it can better people’s lives. Currently, as Senior Director of Digital Media at The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy he is attempting to change behavior through the innovative use of social media, games, video, mobile devices, and the Web.
For ten years before that, he used technology as a tool to teach about

contemporary genocide. Whatever the digital intervention, measurement of behavior change and
learning is essential and an important part of Lawrence's work.
