My technology experience dates back to Commodore 64’s and Apple IIGS’s. When introduced to those devices in my younger years, I was hooked. Since then, I’ve always had a love for all things technology.
I’ve utilized Google since 2005 and have led trainings on nearly every application available through GSuite and have also led teachers through Google Certified Educator Training. I co-created a new technology-infused gamified professional development system for my school district called #TRIADvances and co-created a gamified Google Certification game. I enjoy teaching tech in and outside of my district and have had the opportunity to lead trainings at neighboring district’s institutes and staff development days, have presented at the IASB IASA IASBO Joint Conference in Chicago (2018), the Illinois Principal’s Association Conference (2018), the Directions Conference (2017, 2018), METC (2018, 2019, 2020), ICE (2018, 2019) and IDEAcon (2020). I’ve streamlined workflows using Google for personal use, teacher/staff use, school district use, and church use. If you are interested in having me lead a training, you can reach me at mike [at] edtechCREATIVE.com.
