Mark Pan

Partnership Strategist, Newsela, USA

Mark Pan is Newsela’s Partnership Strategist, focused on developing and scaling partnerships that transform the way students develop nonfiction fluency and critical thinking skills: through the news.

Launched in June 2013, Newsela strives toward its mission of unlocking the written word for everyone by publishing high-interest news articles daily at five levels of complexity for grades 2-12 using Newsela’s proprietary, rapid text-leveling process. News articles are adapted from partners such as AP, Washington Post, and The Guardian. Now, the news is becoming an integral piece to students and teachers across the country— 75% of all schools in the U.S. use Newsela.

Prior to Newsela, Pan was an early employee at Coursera, leading their Partnerships team in new revenue generation and partner satisfaction.

His interest for scaling education through technology stems from his experience teaching ESL in Hong Kong and Malaysia.
