Rick Gaisford’s interest in the use of technology in education goes well beyond his role as education technology specialist for the Utah State Board of Education. An active member of the State Education Technology Directors Association since it’s founding 15 years ago, Gaisford has always appreciated the opportunity to hear from his counterparts nationally, and influence the discussion on the use of technology in schools.
EdScoop caught up with Gaisford at SETDA’s recent leadership summit to talk about his state’s advances in statewide broadband and education technology applications.
