For edtech directors such as Jared Mader, who is part of the Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units, that means working with teachers, curriculum coordinators and content experts to help them make the most of their districts’ one-to-one programs — in particular, using the devices to access openly licensed digital materials. Mader oversees the education technology initiatives for one of Pennsylvania’s 29 intermediate units, which are regional educational service agencies established by the state legislature that provide online, innovative and technology-rich learning services. Mader’s intermediate unit serves over 100,000 students in 25 school districts, nearly all of which have deployed some variation of a one-to-one program.
