K12USA.com Announces Launch of New EdTech Blog
From ransomware to sexting to student safety, topics address a wide variety of issues relevant to K–12 IT administrators.
With education technology evolving at a mind-blowing pace, IT professionals are deluged with information. Add to that an alarming boom in cybercrimes, including phishing attacks, malware invasions, ransomware strikes, and social-engineering tricksters, and their jobs are frighteningly complicated.
Moreover, students are at risk of being cyberbullied or lured into illegal practices like sexting. Some are tech-savvy enough to hack into school computers and networks.
The K12USA.com blog aims to help schools and overwhelmed IT professionals navigate the rough waters of EdTech with relevant articles featuring tips, tools, and resources for surviving and thriving.
“Our new blog is one more way we can be of service to our customers and the EdTech community at large,” says K12USA.com founder and CEO James Punderson. “Our team is continually researching ‘hot’ topics, condensing key information, and finding the best resources that will help our readers.”
