My Info[edit]

My name is Alexander Jackl.

I am the Lead Data Scientist and the Vice-President of Technology Strategy and Architecture for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

I am the co-chair of the Technical Board and on the Board of Directors of the Schools Interoperability Framework Association- SIF. SIF is the national k12 data standards organization. I am also the project lead on the Teaching and Learning Project Team.

I have been a consultant on the National Education Data Model(NEDM), Common Education Data Standards(CEDS) and the Assessment Interoperability Framework (AIF).

I have a deep commitment to education in the world and always looking for opportunities to support and cause that!

I also, on a fun note, won the 2015 New England Regional Iron GM tournament at Total Con, New England's largest gaming convention!

Most important of all, I am a father of three (boy, 18; girl, 14; boy, 12), husband to one, brother to two, and friend to many!
