KSTF Senior Fellow Casey O’Hara attended the 2014 Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), which was held March 21–23 at Arizona State University. Commitments to Action, a unique feature of the Clinton Global Initiative, translate practical goals into meaningful and measurable results. CGI U commitments address specific challenges across CGI U’s five focus areas. While at the meeting, Casey spoke about his commitment to developing a network of appropriate technology experts to support STEM teachers in implementing project-based learning around appropriate technology development, which he defines as small-scale technologies—designed in collaboration with a local community in a developing nation or region—that are economically, culturally, and environmentally appropriate to a given community.
