With a level of passion only surpassed by his nearly four decades of experience as an educator in Georgia, Dr. Steven Miletto has served his community well as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal. As a content creator, you can see and hear Steven on his Teaching Learning Leading K-12 podcast. We have a great conversation today with Steven about the evolution of technology in education (and challenges that many of us don’t think about that educators are dealing with every day). Technology has become ubiquitous in our lives and we are always surrounded by it. There is value in technology, but only when used wisely.

In this episode you will hear:

  • Steven’s journey into technology in his career
  • The changing point in schools from having technology as an advantage to an addiction
  • The slimming of the cellphone and how tech is thought about
  • Policy debate in academic institutions
  • Tech hygiene in education
  • The fight between value and distraction in education technology
  • Healthy tech habits everyone should know
