Lori Aument currently serves as a business education instructor and is the virtual reality program coordinator, a new program, at Mercy Career & Technical High School (Mercy CTE). Lori spent fourteen years as a mathematics teacher at Mercy CTE prior to transitioning to her current role. During the past fourteen years, she worked as a key team member for developing and implementing a 1:1 computer program, facilitated professional development opportunities for faculty in the areas of technology and innovative learning practices and co-developed Mercy CTE’s IMPACT Philly program, a design thinking program. Lori’s time is spent creating immersive learning opportunities that incorporate virtual and other mixed reality programs in particularly in the areas of STEM and Mercy’s Health Occupations CTE program. These experiences provide students with a unique way of learning and retaining concepts that can be challenging. The students have responded very favorably to this kind of learning. They are excited, engaged, and work very well together when they are in the VR lab. Lori earned a B.S. in Elementary Education from Kutztown University and an M.S. in Learning Technologies with a concentration in Instructional Design from Drexel University. Lori resides in Oreland Pennsylvania with her husband, Christian, and her daughter, Evangeline (Evie). In 2015 Lori was nominated, along with three others, for the Philadelphia Inquirer “Person of the Year” award. She was also shortlisted for the 2018 Reimagine Education Awards. Lori’s students have received the following recognition under her guidance; 3rd Place University of Delaware’s Social Venture Competition, Audience Choice Award Jefferson University’s (formerly Philadelphia University) Celebration of Innovation Gala, and selected to present at the MIT Learning Innovation Showcase.
