EdCo WNY Technology Integration


Technology Integration Program Overview

The EdCo Technology Integration program was developed in 2011 as an additional service for schools that belong to the Education Collaborative of Western New York consortium that focuses on meeting the challenge of effectively utilizing technology in the classroom to increase student achievement.  Eric Yarwood, a Technology Integration Specialist, provides training throughout the school year in the form of summer workshops, professional development sessions, group/ one-one meetings and more. Training can focus on hardware and software ranging from a mouse to an iPad and Microsoft Word to Google Documents, as well as best practices in 21st Century Education.  In addition, Eric is a certified teacher with more than 10 years of classroom and education experience, which allows him to not only work with teachers, but also their students to foster technology skills and knowledge centered around a classroom curriculum.
