Domenic Grignano

Mr. Grignano is a pioneer, innovator and leading educational technology consultant for K-12. For over 20 years, he was a classroom teacher for grades 1-8 at East Rock Magnet School in New Haven, CT. For the last 11 years of his career with the New Haven Public Schools, Mr. Grignano became the school's technology facilitator/systems engineer and worked to promote, enable, and empower students, staff, and administrators at all levels in educational technology.

Through his efforts, the school attained the status of being in the top 5% technology-rich schools in the country. He was instrumental in forming major partnerships with Microsoft, Compaq/HP, Asante technologies, Xerox, as well as receiving over 7 million dollars in grants and funding. In addition, East Rock was chosen to be the first school in the nation, with the largest allocation of funding, to assess the impact of laptops in the classroom for the federal government.

Over the past 11 years, he wrote a Technology Tips column for Harcourt's national publication, Classroom Connect Connected Newsletter, viewed by over 50,000 people each month. As a final tribute to the newsletter, Mr. Grignano created a website, technologyinfusion.weebly.com, showcasing his major articles that still have the potential to influence technology instruction for the 21st century.
