Sree Sreenivasan is a journalist and technology expert at Columbia School of Journalism. As anyone who has sat in his class or watched one of his YouTube videos will attest, Sreenivasan’s particular strength is in explaining technology to students, faculty, and consumers. He is the former technology reporter for two New York television stations, a social media blogger for CNET, and producer of his own weekly web-based call-in show. But this year, Sreenivasan added another notch to his belt as Columbia University’s first Chief Digital Officer. He spoke with UB about his new role, and what he sees for the future of technology in education.
