EdTech Maniac Darin Anderson


Back in '82, when I was 14 years old, I remember sitting in my school library during lunch playing "Lemonade Stand" on an old Apple 2 computer. Anybody else remember that game? Or Oregon Trail? Ahhh, those were the good ol' days.



Fast forward to 1993. There was an episode of the X Files where, at the end of the show, the camera slowly zoomed in a computer screen that was displaying a message - all on its own. I remember saying to my friend, "There's no way that could happen! It's crazy!"


Now skip ahead to 2013.   Need I say more? 

Hello. My name is Darin Anderson, and I am an Edtech Maniac. I am in my 15th year in education. My main experience is with teaching secondary Language Arts and Physical Education to eager country kids. Currently, I work as an instructional coach teaching the wonders of Ed Tech to teachers and students alike.

My friend and colleague, Blair Einfeldt, and I started this Website to show others how we integrate technology into educational settings, everyday. Our goal is to do less introduction and more application. When we find a new app, program, or idea, we will show you how we use it - in the classroom - to get real results from students.

Please check back with us often for ideas and angles that you may not have recognized before. And please give us your feedback and results from the "trenches" of the classroom. Thanks, and join the mania!

  1. Darin! Just a quick question:

    (first off, apologies for asking this as a comment)
    We have an offer for the blog.

    We're writing to ask if you'd be interested in making a short blog-post for this eBook, and in return, become an affiliate?

    Recently, we've been researching the best methods which "straight a" college students use to score so highly.

    Rather than record the obvious tips (such as "just study a lot"), we kept track of all of the non-conventional practices 4.0 GPA students use to boost their grades.

    We found everything from what to eat before a test, what colors to wear or avoid, and even the best seats in class to increase memory retention and put it into an eBook.

    Top 10 Ways To Get Straight A's was born

    We work with and highly appreciate blog writers. We are a small business, writing educational eBooks.

    Go to this link here (https://app.box.com/s/tu3myyszf6pi12pjzlna) for a sample of the 57 page eBook,

    ...and this link here (www.straightagpa.com/welcome-affiliates/) for your affiliate program if you choose.

    Have questions on getting set up? We'd love to talk!

    Thank you,
