WHAT WE DO
The Georgia Educational Technology Consortium, Inc.®, a non-profit corporation independent of any educational or commercial entities, is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors, all unpaid volunteers, under the leadership of Dr. Brian Blanton of Henry County Schools.
The Consortium sponsors the annual Georgia Educational Technology Conference and the Georgia Student Technology Competition. Each year, the Consortium awards several Innovation Grants to teachers.
Jill Hobson, of Gainesville City Schools (GA), is the chair for the GaETC Conference. Tom Lamb, a retired educator from Forsyth County, is in charge of the Student Technology Competition, and Dr. Paulina Kuforiji of Columbus State University supervises the Innovation Grants program.
With over 250 concurrent sessions, nationally known speakers, and engaging workshops, the Georgia Educational Technology Conference provides educators and educational leaders the opportunity to learn about the latest in innovative education technology.
The Consortium awards innovation grants to support creative exploration, awareness, and engagement in educational technology. This allows a deeper dive into project ideas and models that promote the overall advancements of our communities.
The Consortium holds a statewide technology competition in which students in grades 3-12 compete in a variety of technology categories. Our goal is to challenge students to become leaders by supporting unique concepts, insights, and approaches to education.
