Join Kate Schrauth of iCouldBe.org and Camille Stone of WeTeachScience.org as they reflect on the lessons learned and opportunities of tech and mentoring. Joining them will be Dr. Lindsay Page, a researcher from The University of Pittsburgh, as she discusses her work with text based mentoring interventions.
