To keep the productive EdTech and IT discussion going, I decided to create a Twitter hashtag devoted to technologists who work in the Information Technology Department at educational institutions. As brilliant as the #edchat discussion are, I thought a separate hashtag would serve beneficial to those focused on topics and questions related to school technology infrastructures. There is a growing need for clear communication between EdTech and IT, and I hope we can bridge the two departments with the #EduIT hashtag.

Thank you to @EdTechSandyK, @bedellj, @techdirector214, @Oh_The_Places, @doug_holton, & @punyamishra for the inspiration. Shout out to @jscognam for spreading the word quickly.

Sample Topics for #EduIT

  • Sharing technology plans
  • Resources regarding CIPA
  • Cloud computing
  • Next generation school technology infrastructures
  • Technical questions
  • E-Rate

    Thanks for getting this going. I would add another suggested topic – support for cloud computing. Honestly, that’s the concern that’s holding me back. I don’t feel I understand tech infrastructure, servers, etc enough for me to take the leap. Might be just me, though.
