Welcome to the SC Midlands Summit!


Ryan Novak

Heathwood Hall Episcopal School
Academic Technology Specialist
Our students may be more comfortable using technology than we adults are, but they still possess a child’s ability to think about what they are doing and understand how to use the technology as a learning tool. As the academic technology specialist at Heathwood Hall, Ryan helps teachers understand how technology can be used to help students think. He incorporates brain research and a focus on executive functioning to help students use their iPads, laptops, phones, robots, etc. to develop the ability to problem solve, organize their learnings, and think deeply. He also utilizes these skills as the cohost of the Ether MMC podcast and director of the Columbia School of Ministry, a teaching ministry of the Columbia Church of Christ.
