Biography

Dr. Paul Kim is Chief Technology Officer for Stanford University School of Education. He has been leading various academic technology initiatives and teaching graduate level courses related to learning technology and digital innovations at Stanford since 2001. His courses focus on contextualized innovations in education, mobile empowerment design, and enterprising higher education systems.

He is currently one of leading researchers for Programmable Open Mobile Internet, an NSF project to develop and evaluate ubiquitous wireless mobile computing and interactive systems for K-20 formal and informal learning and assessment scenarios.

He is also working with numerous international organizations in developing mobile empowerment solutions for extremely underserved communities in developing countries. In his recent experiments in Latin America, Africa, and India, he investigated the effects of highly programmable open mobile learning programs with literacy, numeracy, and entrepreneurship education programs (e.g., math games, storytelling, and farming simulations). As part of his research, he is also exploring mobile wireless sensors in simulation-based learning and ePortfolio-based assessment to promote creativity and critical thinking in problem solving and innovation designs.

In the higher education space, he advises investment bankers and technology ventures focused on e-learning, knowledge management, and mobile communication solutions. His due-diligence engagements include early-stage angel funding and also later-stage private equity-based investments for large enterprises such as Grand Canyon University (Stock symbol: LOPE) and Northcentral University, NCA/HLC accredited online universities.

He has a Ph.D. degree in Educational Technology and previously served as Chairman of the Board for Intercultural Institute of California, Executive Director of Information Technology for University of Phoenix (Stock symbol: APOL), and Vice President & CIO for Vatterott College.
