Welcome to the State of Tech

Welcome to The State of Tech! The State of Tech will be a bi-weekly podcast covering educational technology in Ohio.  The show is geared toward anyone in education (from teachers to principals to technology directors) wanting to explore how technology can be used to improve the quality of teaching and learning in their respective schools and districts.

In the show we:

  • Discuss ed-tech issues
  • Cover technology news
  • List upcoming conferences and training opportunities
  • Review helpful technology resources
  • Highlight best practices being demonstrated by educators across Ohio

One month prior to each episode we will announce what the upcoming topic(s) will be.  This allows people just like you to contribute to the show by sharing your ideas, opinions, experiences, and resources related to the topic.

To help launch the State of Tech we have put together a short survey where you can assist us in choosing the topics you would like us to cover.  Please click here to access and complete the survey.  Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will help us gear the show to your needs and interests.

We truly believe that Ohio is full of dedicated educators using technology in creative and effective ways with students.  We look forward to sharing and learning with you as each episode we illustrate that Ohio really is the State of Tech.

Sincerely The State of Tech Team,
