In a company-wide announcement naming CCT's Shelley Pasnik as a senior vice president of EDC, president David Offensend said, "Shelley Pasnik has been a leader in early childhood throughout her 22 years at EDC, focusing particularly on the use of technology in education and in informal learning.  She was the director of the Center for Children and Technology and continues that work to understand the role that new technologies can play in the lives of young people.  She developed and leads several important relationships including with the Public Broadcasting System and, more recently, the LEGO Foundation. She is the editor of the book Getting Ready to Learn: Creating Effective, Educational Children’s Media and is regularly quoted in news outlets, including the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and EdWeek.  She sets an excellent example about how we can all help enhance EDC’s external profile which is why she was asked to co-lead the Business Development Strategy group, and why she is now leading the Communication group."
