Dr. Julie Carter and Rob Dickson to provide personalized EdTech services to solution providers and educators

Minneapolis, MN (October 21, 2014) – Today the K-12 and EdTech industries are getting the solution they have been seeking with the launch of GreyED Solutions. The new company, headed by nationally recognized education leaders, will help schools plan and execute their technology implementation and integration goals. GreyEd will also supply EdTech providers with industry insight to aid in the development and refinement of their products and services.

GreyED Solutions was co-founded by Julie Carter, former executive director of technology for Minnetonka Public Schools, and Rob Dickson, current executive director of information management at Omaha Public Schools. Carter brings years of successful consulting experience in both the K-12 and EdTech industry. During her time at Minnetonka, she oversaw one of the best 1:1 computing efforts in the country and was named a Tech & Learning “Leader of the Year” as well as one of NSBA’s “20 to Watch” in 2010. She has since continued consulting with districts nationwide to support various implementations.

Recently named 2014’s “20 to Watch” from NSBA, Dickson’s other accomplishments include leading the first VBlock cloud data center installation in K-12 education, launching one of the fastest growing virtual schools in the nation as well as advising district leaders nationwide with their technology planning and integration efforts.

“With the growth of technology and digital content in the classroom, EdTech vendors need to hear the voices of educators now more than ever,” Carter stated. “We facilitate the discussion between supplier and consumer; it is our mission to utilize the dialog to foster the development and improvement of EdTech products and services, thus ensuring the most innovative and successful technologies in the hands of students.”

Drawing from years of experience in technology and administration, GreyED Solutions’ industry expertise provides districts nationwide with technology implementation solutions, designed to empower today’s learners. Through their personalized LEARNing (Listen Engage Analyze Recommend Next Steps) process, GreyED Solutions helps schools and districts achieve their technology goals. By gathering leading national educators and administrators together for Feedback Forums, GreyED Solutions also aims to help organizations within the EdTech industry develop and refine their products and services based on current market needs.

“We could not be happier to make this announcement. As current and former district administrators, we recognize the challenges that administrators and EdTech service providers face in today’s tech focused environment,” said Dickson. “We are here to ease the strain on both sides.”
