Chad Kafka works as a middle school computer teacher and district Technology Coach for Franklin Public Schools. He enjoys the role of Technology Coach as it allows him to collaborate with teachers in his buildings and to team teach using technology with the students. Personally, Chad enjoys finding new ways to engage students using the technology at our disposal. Outside of Franklin, Chad enjoys presenting and networking with educators at the state and national level. For the past two years, he has been the Conference Chair and instructor at the Milwaukee Digital Media Conference and been a presenter for WEMTA. Chad had the good fortune to attend the Google Teacher Academy in Washington DC in 2009 and continues to network with many Google Certified Teachers across the world. This past March, Chad was 1 of 76 ed tech leaders accepted into the Apple Distinguished Educator program. As part of this recognition, Chad was able to attend the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute in Phoenix in July where he worked with other educators to create content for K-12 teachers that will be published on iTunes U this November. You can find more information about Chad online at his website or network with him through Twitter (@chadkafka) or Google+ (chadkafka).
Chad personally enjoys learning new ways to be more efficient, effective and engaging with technology and hopes he's able to inspire and share some new things with you.
