Since her early years at IBM Rosalina has been a proponent to increasing the use of technology in education. She developed several comprehensive training programs at IBM along with various other employers that have netted her numerous awards. Rosalina built the concept LibChalk after a meeting with Brian Pichman about the need to increase utilization of technology tools within the Library industry as a means to increase engagement of employees and patrons.
Brian Pichman has been involved in libraries all his life, from attending story hour as a kid to his first job at a public library when he was 16. Brian quickly grew into a technology innovator at the library, and automated the majority of the day to day processes to offer a seamless technology experience for staff and patrons; with little to no need for technical support. Brian then went on to build an interactive makerspace at the library. Through this experience, Brian started a collaborative platform called the Evolve Project.
Justin began innovating and expanding the possibilities of machines early on. In 2002, Justin developed the ThinkVantage Toolset at IBM which was deployed to each and everyone one of the millions of IBM machines deployed – and is still being deployed to this day. Then Justin tackled higher education as the Faculty Lead and Interim Dean for the School of Technology at Rasmussen College, winning multiple awards for his achievements in innovation within the higher education space. Justin has always taken to heart the continued evolution of implementing and teaching technology.
