About Me

I'm the former ed tech director of Miami-Dade County Public Schools and believe that all students need both digital literacy and fluency in a second language. It's powerful to connect with teachers and students in other countries through digital communication tools. I've written 14 books about technology in education, including a guide to professional development in technology, published by the National School Boards Association. I give workshops on grant writing for K-20 educational uses, with a focus on edtech funding. Follow @ritaoates to learn more!
