Bio sketch

Larry Berger is CEO and co-founder of Wireless Generation. There he has led the invention of the patent-pending mCLASS® software system for early reading and math assessment, which has transformed the way educators collect and use assessment data, creating a culture of continuous feedback in classrooms. The mCLASS software streamlines the assessment process and increases the value of data by delivering it immediately in handheld- and Web-based reports for teachers and administrators, with recommendations and tools for linking data to instruction. Larry also developed (with Wireless Generation co-founder Greg Gunn) The Hole in The Web, an online extension of Paul Newman's "Hole In The Wall Gang" Camp for children with cancer and blood diseases. As a White House Fellow, Larry worked on Educational Technology at NASA, where he authored a vision of NASA's 21st century educational technology agenda, and did the conceptual design and early development of NASA BioBLAST, a curriculum module for high school biology.Larry has published numerous articles on education technology and the use of handheld computing to support diagnostic instruction. In addition, he is the co-author of I Will Sing Life, a book about the poetry writing program he developed and taught for children with serious illnesses, and of Up Your Score: The Underground Guide To The SAT, a best-selling SAT review book that he wrote when he was in high school. Larry holds a B.A. summa cum laude from Yale and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University.
