About This Blog

Technology in the Middle has three primary goals: highlight the work of teachers as they infuse technology throughout the curriculum, provide resources for teaching and learning in the 21st century, and encourage all who read it to actively participate in conversations about the education profession.

Technology in the Middle is maintained by Patrick Woessner, a middle school educator with nearly 20 years of experience in public and independent schools. A Minnesota native (and U of MN graduate), he began his teaching career in New Zealand, migrated to Texas, and then moved to St. Louis in 1994 to teach at MICDS. After serving as the Science Department Chair for eight years, he assumed his current position as the Middle School Coordinator of Instructional Technology in 2002 after completing his MAT in Educational Technology at Webster University.

Patrick has presented at numerous conferences, including the National Science Teacher’s Association, Midwest Educational Technology Conference, and Lausanne Laptop Institute, been featured in publications including ASCD Express, the MacArthur Foundation’s Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning, and School Library Journal, is a former public relations chair for the K12 Online Conference, and currently serves as an online book reviewer for Stenhouse Publishing.
