our story

EdTech 101 was founded in 2013 to deliver the BEST technology to charter schools and private schools across the United States. After witnessing many school districts purchase hardware that was either obsolete or not appropriate for classroom settings, we set out on a journey to change the game of deploying educational technology devices in the classroom. 

The first thing we noticed was a heavy trend toward "refurbished" products. This did not sit well with our founding team. Our president stood up in a meeting and said, "Why would we want our students, our future leaders, using the technology of YESTERDAY?!" That powerful quote opened our eyes to a whole new beginning with Google Chromebooks and highly improved Windows PCs for students to take tests and collaborate with each other using these devices. 

After becoming Google for Education Authorized Partners, we found our niche in this marketplace. We pride ourselves on service and knowledge of Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education. Since we made the decision to offer ONLY the technology of tomorrow, we have found great success as a company, and even better success inside the classrooms of schools that partner with us.

If your school is planning a deployment of student devices, get in touch with our staff today!

Chief Fun Officer

I enjoy developing new relationships with our schools. School administrators and teachers make the perfect partners, and it's always my goal to keep your students paired with a working device. Connecting schools with the right tools to serve their needs is my specialty. I like to play ice hockey and spend time with my family at the beach.

Favorite part of my job: Starting new relationships from scratch.
