Seth Fleischauer founded Banyan Global Learning in 2008 after serving as an NYC Teaching Fellow and graduating from Princeton University. He believes in the potential of video conferencing to transform education, especially through collaborative virtual field trips. The distance learning models Seth pioneered enable students and teachers to forge authentic connections with people to whom and places to which they would otherwise not have access. Seth trains teachers on multiple continents in how to use video conferencing to deliver groundbreaking educational experiences no matter where they are in the world. Recently, his blog has focused on supporting parents who are transitioning to homeschool teachers during school closures.
