It is official: I learned today I will be starting work on June 19th as the Director of Education Advocacy for AT&T in the state of Oklahoma. I will be relocating to Oklahoma City with my family, which will be a great move for us for many reasons. This will be a GREAT opportunity for me to continue my work as a vocal advocate for learning as conversation, messy assessment, digital storytelling, safe digital social networking, collaborative use of read/write web tools in the classroom, and the use of primary sources to study and understand the diverse voices of history and our world.

This position does not involve sales or commissions: I will be a K-20 educational liason working with teachers, technology and curriculum directors, superintendents and principals on a variety of issues related to educational technology, technology integration, and 21st century learning.

What a relief, the year long job hunt is at last over! Now a new adventure begins. 🙂

    Congratulations! I haven’t been in a few years, but I found Oklahoma City to be a beautiful, unique city. Sounds like a great position! It must have been in the cards.

  2. Congrats! I have only been following your blog for a couple of weeks, but really enjoy your commentary and the conversations that are inspired by your writings! Lucky AT&T!

    Congrats and good luck to you- I’ll see you next week.

  4. Congrats, Wes! Finally, I’ll be able to say I know someone in Oklahoma!!

    Seriously, best of luck. This is Texas’ loss, OK’s gain.

    WAIT! This makes me the longest contributor to TechEdge! That won’t work.

    Will TCEA still let you contribute?

    Excited for you,

    Congratulations on the new job, Wes! I’ve been following your blog for about a month now and have shared your postings with the podcasting pilot team at Cal Poly, SLO. You’ve made a big impact with your blog and podcast, as well as your views on the use of technology in education – I hope we still get to read/hear you once you are onboard with the company! AT&T knew what they were doing when they hired you. Good luck!

    What a wonderful experience it has been, to be your apprentice, here at Texas Tech University. You are the youngest person I have ever admired and respected, as a mentor and character model. I pray that God will bless you and your family beyond all your wildest dreams, and that you will reach your true potential, which is obviously sky-high.

    I salute your integrity, your hard-working ethic, and your humility (despite your super-high intelligence).

    Your friend,
