Jessica Brogley, teacher of educational technology in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, was recently elected to the Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association board of directors as the director of higher education.
WEMTA is a nonprofit, volunteer-led educational organization whose mission is to empower educators to provide learning experiences that prepare students to flourish in an information-rich world.
“I am thankful for the opportunity, and I’m looking forward to being an advocate for pre-service teachers across the state,” said Brogley.
“We are so fortunate to have Jessica as part of our teaching workforce in the School of Education,” said Dr. Jen Collins, director of the School of Education at UW-Platteville. “She is so knowledgeable and forward thinking with regards to leveraging of technology to increase academic outcomes, especially for students in more rural and isolated communities. I look forward to hearing what she is able to share about our experiences in Southwest Wisconsin as well as what she will learn from others throughout the state.”
WEMTA elections are held each winter between Jan. 15 and the organization’s annual conference. Typically, terms begin at the annual conference, but with the conference being cancelled this year due to COVID-19, terms began April 1.
The 2021 WEMTA Conference will be held Feb. 7-9 at the Central Wisconsin Convention and Expo Center in Rothschild, Wisconsin.
