Jeffrey Harlan – Founding Director

A 30-year veteran educator, Jeffrey Harlan’s deep understanding of children and schools has informed his work creating programming that is supported by, not driven by, technical innovation. To date, Jeffrey’s Dreamline work has directly impacted more than 200,000 students, their teachers, and their communities across 41 countries including 47 states of the US.

Before creating Dreamline, Jeffrey developed curriculum for organizations such as The University of Pennsylvania Annenberg Center for Public Policy, and he created a first-of-its-kind company for online homework and scheduling. 

Jeffrey’s recent speaking engagements include ISTELive 21!, Zoomtopia!, and the 2022 Future of Technology Education Conference.

Creating Dream Path SEL is his dream come true as it can offer the benefits of Dreamline to a wider audience than ever before, creating access to dreams and the skills to pursue them. 

In this video, you can hear Jeffrey talking about how the Dreamline Mobile App works and why dreams matter.
