Craig Ellison, executive director of technology and media services for Floyd County Schools and interim principal of Alto Park Elementary School, has been selected to serve on the Georgia Educational Technology Consortium (GaETC) program committee for 2016.  The committee will be responsible for evaluating presentation proposals for the GaETC Conference from interested presenters and selecting those that will help build a valuable conference experience for the ed tech community in Georgia.

Ellison was a teacher at Pepperell Middle School when he was first introduced to the Georgia Educational Technology Consortium.  “I owe so much to GaETC,” stated Ellison. “It was my first concurrent session at GaETC many years ago that defined my career path.”  He added, “Hopefully, I can be part of helping to define the career path of a new generation of technology leaders in Georgia.”

The program committee will include 10 leaders in educational technology from across the state.  Over 4,200 educators attended last year’s conference that included hundreds of sessions presented over three days.  The program includes a wide variety of topics that benefit teachers, media specialists, technology coordinators, technology specialists, special educators, vocational teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, curriculum directors, staff development coordinators, Title I coordinators, and anyone interested in educational technology.   


The 2016 GaETC Conference will be held November 2 – 4 at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park, Georgia.
