BlackMoney Worldwide, 11/15/2011 (Juan Gilbert)
Clemson's Gilbert Receives Presidential Mentoring Honor, Election Contract. Dr. Juan E. Gilbert, Chair of Human-Centered Computing in the College of Computing at Clemson University, has gained attention from President Obama for his work to increase the number of underrepresented students in math, engineering and science. Gilbert's many discoveries include the African-American Multiple Learning Styles integrated learning system, with a prototype designed to teach algebra in a culturally-responsive way. He was also selected this summer to lead a three-year $4.5 million contract with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to create accessible voting technology. He is developer of the Prime III universal voting machine, which he presented on during the 10th annual Innovation and Equity symposium in San Francisco in 2010.
