Who is Richard Byrne?

Richard is a former high school social studies teacher best known for developing the blog, Free Technology for Teachers. He taught for eight and a half years at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in South Paris, ME. During that time Richard piloted 1:1 laptop use before the program went school-wide. He coordinated a "laptop squad" to support teachers' use of laptops in their classrooms and also served on a number of curriculum and assessment committees.

Richard is a five time winner of the Edublogs Award for Best Resource Sharing Blog. He became a Google Certified Teacher in 2009. In 2012 Richard received a Merlot Classics award from chancellor’s office of California State University. In 2010 he was a finalist for ACTEM’s (Association of Computer Teachers and Educators in Maine) educator of the year award. Tech & Learning Magazine named Richard one of their “people to watch” in their 100@30 30th Anniversary celebration (http://techlearning.com/article/26660).

On a daily basis Free Technology for Teachers reaches a subscriber base of more than 60,000 educators. In addition to writing Free Technology for Teachers, I also maintain iPadApps4School.com, Android4Schools.com, and PracticalEdTech.com. My printed work includes a monthly column for School Library Journal, contributing author to What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media, and contributions to Teacher Librarian.

Organizer of Richard Byrne Keynote and Networking Event

Otus brings the entire school community together on a common technology platform reducing the number of disconnected solutions educators use while providing actionable insight to school leaders.

Teachers have a single place to access all the learning, classroom and data tools they need, school leaders see a clearer picture of student performance, students stay organized, and parents become more connected.

When classroom tools and learning data are centralized, students can be supported like never before.
