Vibhu Mittal has worn many hats in a remarkable career — CMU professor, Google scientist, education entrepreneur, and now CEO of EdModo, the world’s largest education platform for schools across 370K schools, 65MM students and 6MM registered teachers.

  • teacher-to-teacher chats to make Shakespeare relevant via Lady Gaga
  • virtual classrooms of the future and the rise of student talent anywhere
