I am excited to debut EdScoop, our newest online news website and the latest in our series of websites dedicated to helping public sector professionals manage and acquire technology more effectively.
Building on the success of our FedScoop and StateScoop government technology news websites, EdScoop is aimed at helping K-12 and higher education leaders and technology directors keep ahead of the rapid changes impacting school districts and college campuses across America.
EdScoop features the latest news and conversations with top leaders driving technology and digital learning in K-12 and higher education, bringing together influential policy and decision-makers at the federal, state and local education levels.
Together with our weekly email newsletter, EdScoop Edition, the debut of EdScoop reflects our long-standing commitment to serve the public sector IT community that began seven years ago with the launch of FedScoop.
FedScoop delivers up-to-the-minute breaking government tech news and is the government IT community’s platform for education and collaboration through news, events, radio and TV. FedScoop engages top leaders from the White House, federal agencies, academia and the tech industry both online and in person to discuss ways technology can improve government, and to exchange best practices and identify how to achieve common goals.
Since then, we’ve expanded our coverage at the state and local level with the launch of StateScoop, which features the latest news on leaders and innovators integrating technology in state and local government agencies. StateScoop similarly brings together leaders from state and local government, academia, and the tech industry to discuss ways technology can improve state and local government and to exchange best practices and identify ways to achieve common goals. Collectively FedScoop and StateScoop reach nearly 200,000 federal, state and local IT decision makers.
The creative verve that has driven FedScoop’s unique government IT community events is reflected in the new design of its flagship news property – and the design of EdScoop. The new look and feel of the site incorporates a number of state-of-the-art features, such as story cards that can reveal layers of information, and responsive design that adapts instantly to whatever device readers are using to get their latest news from EdScoop.
We’re pleased to have Corinne Lestch lead our EdScoop editorial efforts. Corinne has been covering education for five years and education technology at the national, state and local level for FedScoop and StateScoop since January 2015. Corinne was previously an award-winning staff reporter covering a variety of beats including education at the New York Daily News, where she reported regularly on the nation’s largest school system.
I hope that you enjoy our new site and that you take a moment to share your thoughts and feedback with me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Corinne directly at Corinne.Lestch@edscoop.com or via Twitter at @EdScoop_News.
