Greg Kulowiec

Prior to joining EdTechTeacher, Greg spent eight years as a high school history teacher and one year as a technology integration specialist in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He began integrating technology into his classroom with early mobile devices including iPods and cell phones. An early adopter of iPads, Chromebooks and 1:1 environments, Greg quickly transitioned to integrating Project Based Learning Environments. Work that his students created during their studies of the Arab Spring of 2011 was featured on National Public Radio.  

Since 2012 as a full time instructor with EdTechTeacher, Greg brings a dynamic approach to technology integration that is paired with powerful instructional frameworks such as Project Based Learning and Design Thinking. Greg works with school districts and teachers throughout the country in workshops and year long professional development to explore thoughtful and effective uses of technology. Greg is a Google Certified Trainer, a Microsoft Innovative Educator, and the co-host of the “So We’ve Been Thinking Podcast”. Greg has presented at MassCue, NCSS, MASCD, ISTE, Google’s Global Education Summit and the EdTechTeacher Innovation Summits. Greg lives in Newburyport, MA with his wife and two children.
