Tech Director Chat
Episode 1

Ask Your Tech Director

Ben Rimes published on

A weekly chat tackling the issue of educational technology from both sides. Ben Rimes, a former teacher turned educational technologist, chats with Pete Poggione, an Information Technology Professional from the private sector turned School IT Director.

In the first episode, Pete attempts to answer a difficult question about why all of the technology isn't connected and setup at the start of the school year, submitted by Miguel Guhlin from his "Stump the Tech Director" blog post. We also interpret Troy Hick's question about changing "Yeah, buts...." into something more positive.

Timestamps for this week's questions:

1:52 - What was Pete doing today?

6:06 - Why can't you hook up all of my technology so it's ready to go at the start of the school year?

8:48 - How do you prioritize who gets service first?

14:23 - How do we turn the "yeah, buts..." into "yes, ands..."?
