State educational technology leaders will receive the benefit of learning about our strategic partners' high quality digital learning products and services.

The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) has selected three leading organizations to facilitate a full-day workshop at the Emerging Technologies Forum on June 27 in Philadelphia. The three SETDA Channel Partners, Academic Business Advisors, Arc Capital Development and    C. Blohm & Associates (CB&A), will provide valuable insights and advice on how to successfully market to K-12 for the third cohort of Emerging Private Sector Partners.

SETDA Channel Partners are established experts in the K-12 industry with experience assisting and growing successful companies, while simultaneously connecting businesses with other influential organizations. Mitch Weisburgh of Academic Business Advisors, Kevin Custer and Rita Ferrandino of Arc Capital Development, and Charlene Blohm of CB&A, will be leading this year’s Emerging Partners workshop.

“State educational technology leaders will receive the benefit of learning about our strategic partners' high quality digital learning products and services,” stated Lan Neugent, SETDA’s Interim Executive Director. “At the same time, these companies will benefit from greater understanding of existing and emerging policies and practices in the states. They will also gain from tapping into the experience and knowledge of those who have set strategic direction and influenced local school technology implementation in their states.”

The nine Emerging Private Sector Partners will benefit from a variety of opportunities throughout the year to showcase their product and services and receive feedback and advice from SETDA Channel Partners and state educational technology leaders. Additional benefits include staying up-to-date on state and national policies, emerging trends, education research and best practices.
