Andrea Forte

I'm an assistant professor in the iSchool (College of Information Science and Technology) at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

I received my PhD from the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology in human-centered computing with a focus on social computing and learning sciences. My MLIS is from the School of Information at University of Texas at Austin.

I'm interested in how emergent uses of technology create opportunities for people to construct new knowledge together.
