Project EDUtechies


EDUtechies – Education Technology Support site to enhance, share and collaborate on technology and technology troubleshooting and support.



This project began July 16, 2007 


Project Coordinator:

               My name is Mike Lund and I work at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) as the PC Support Manager of the Micro Repair Office of the Academic Computing and Communications Center.  We manage most of the computer labs on campus, assist with residence connections, wireless, as well as assist faculty and staff with computing issues.  I have 4 staff members and 25 students who work for me.  I am looking to create a networking project which will be helpful and useful for my office, as well as offices similar to mine in nature. 




The objective of this project is to create a website discussion blog as well as use a social sharing application that will allow for group involvement between technology coordinators, consultants and troubleshooters to be able to share tools, tips and processes which they use to assist in repair, maintenance and tweaking of educational technology.  


The goal is to utilize collaborative web tools constructively in order to provide educational technologists an avenue to evaluate and discuss troubleshooting and support of educational technologies.

1.        Utilize the https://edutechies.wordpress.com blog site which allows collaborative postings and evaluations on troubleshooting tools to support the hardware aspects of computer technology.

1.        Create a blog format that will enhance discussion of educational technology support

2.        Create categories to allow for ease of post reference and searching of respective information.

3.        Create a review and rating system for the tools as well as comments, user tips, and general feedback.

4.        Review and evaluate training tools for computer hardware technology (manuals, training sites, certification schools and sites).

2.        Utilize http://groups.diigo.com/groups/edutechies social bookmarking tool a group to share technology website links, tools and references within the EDUtechies group.  Along with technology colaberation, this tool also allows ease of posting any web valuabe web information that may be shared and posted to the EDUtechies blog site.
