Howard Blumenthal

For many years, I was a writer (20+ books), syndicated newspaper columnist (100+ papers), television producer (Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? for PBS, plus projects for Food Network, MTV, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, more), and an executive in media companies (Bertelsmann, Hearst, Warner, public media). I’ve won many awards for work in children’s media, documentaries, and instruction. I’ve been fortunate; I have worked with learning, kids, media, and fun stuff for decades–and I’ve worked with great people all along the way. Now, I focus entirely on how people grow up in the 21st century, how they learn, what they learn and how we can improve the situation for large numbers of people. Not just students—people under 25—because they represent a minority of people on earth, but everyone.
