Welcome to the PM Technology Blog. I’m your host, Charlie Reisinger, Technology Director for Penn Manor School District in beautiful Lancaster County Pennsylvania. My role is to administer district IT infrastructure and lead Penn Manor’s instructional technology initiatives. I’m fortunate to work with a team of dedicated experts who value innovation and student achievement. I have tremendous respect and admiration for their impressive technical work, commitment to customer service and dedication to student education.
I started the PM Techblog in the summer of 2007 with a plan to document events and news related to district technology initiatives. With so much changing so quickly, students, staff and parents would benefit from a central district tech news source; one that was an alternative to email blasts and updates. Penn Manor staff and the district academic community are still the core audience. However, I’ve been amazed by the volume of non-Penn Manor traffic the articles on this site generate. Welcome to all of our EdTech visitors across the globe!
For the curious, the PM Technology Blog utilizes the free WordPress publishing tool. Why? WordPress is easy-to-use, supports a number of attractive themes and is widely supported by a great number of global users. If you are a Penn Manor staff member interested in setting up a free classroom, department or activity blog, contact a member of the tech team and we’ll get you setup with a site: http://blogs.pennmanor.net.
