The Growing Need For #EduIT
Over the past few months on Twitter, I have seen several blog posts regarding issues between teachers and school technology administrators. Majority of the posts come from teachers and edtech specialists expressing frustration that information technology administrators don’t get their instructional needs. In almost every post, a rebuttal comment from IT admins spark animated discussions back and forth. They are great discussions and it only supports my vision for a growing need of education information technology hybrid specialists.
On Twitter, I see many teachers and edtech professionals “geeking” out, and conversely, I see many IT admins participating on teacher #edchats. There is interest in both worlds, and until we have EdIT degrees and certifications, the #EduIT hashtag is the closet you will get to a hybrid world.
