Naomi Hupert


Naomi Hupert has worked at the intersection of technology, literacy, and STEM content areas for over 25 years. Her work focuses on the use of technology as a tool to support learning for children and the adults who work with them, and aims to provide all students with engaging and challenging academic instruction. She brings a special focus on improving outcomes for students who struggle to meet grade-level academic benchmarks due to inadequate access to quality instruction, disabilities, or other challenges to learning, and engages digital resources to support this population of students, their families, and other adults who influence children’s learning experiences.

Hupert’s research has led to better understanding of the impact of transmedia learning experiences, teachers’ use of digital tools to support early learning, and the role of digital tools in elementary and middle-school science, math, and literacy education. Her work is characterized by the development and implementation of rigorous formative and summative program evaluations that provide usable, real-time information to educators and those working to improve learning outcomes for all students.

Hupert holds a Master of Science in Education, with a specialization in literacy and language-related learning disabilities, from Bank Street College of Education. In addition to her work at EDC, Hupert has been a reading tutor for middle-grade students with mild to moderate learning disabilities, a school board member in her local school district,  a board member of a foundation supporting children and adults with disabilities to participate and flourish in their communities, and is currently an active board member for her local library supporting expansion of services and accessibility to the community.
