Sharp-eyed readers know Tech & Learning’s cover tagline is “Ideas and Tools for Edtech Leaders” (Go ahead, turn back. It’s right there next to the month and year.)

Our reporters, advisors, and editors cover that gamut every day: from the big-picture blog posts of T&L advisors to the nitty-gritty of product reviews of classroom tools, and everything in between.

This month expect a big boost in both departments as we revamp our SchoolCIO section online and in print. Our new contributing editor Ellen Ullman will lead this effort. Ullman has been writing about technology for 15 years, and specifically about edtech since 2003. Ullman penned two articles this month: “The New One-to-One” focuses on the ideas, and “Laptop Lessons” focuses on the tools. She will also be tracking district-level doings in SchoolCIO.

We’re also excited to announce a new location for this year’s Tech Forum events. Boston-area readers should pencil in April 8 for professional development. We’re also planning a second, virtual event for late spring/early summer. More details here: www.techlearning.com/events/techforum/index.

An essential part of our growth involves your own contribution. Let us know what we are doing right, and what we’re missing. Log on and respond to our comment sections. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook. It’s our community of readers that drives our content. Help us help you!

As a result, educators are placing ever-increasing demands for higher levels of reading competency.   

Wireless overhaul yields improved reliability, simplicity

 Maintaining adequate wireless coverage was a continual battle. Placed on a shelf, a table, or the floor in a classroom, access points were easily moved, unplugged, or even stolen. Without central management, there was no way to know a problem existed until a user complained.
