Pike Mall Tech is the blog of Mike Paul.

Mike is a lifelong tech enthusiast (which basically means he knows enough about technology to be really, really dangerous) and now a digital learning coach helping teachers create deeper learning experiences for students by leveraging technology.

This site offers articles based on both research and actual classroom experiences, giving educators a look at how to use technology effectively and likely how to NOT use technology effectively.

I am, by no means, the world’s leading thinker on educational technology. But I constantly question how we do things in education and am always looking for better ways to accomplish our goals.

I’m from Kentucky and live in Louisville with the real brains of this operation, my lovely wife, Amanda, and my daughter Lainey, who is the real reason why this blog even exists.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I can provide value to you while you’re here.

    Hi Mike!

    It seems that you have some pretty elevated technology experience and skills! I am working on becoming more versed with many of the technology based systems that are available and related to the classroom, but I have a ays to go.

    Like you, I am definitely a geek. My class is covered in Star Wars and Marvel posters and I love incorporating geek culture into my teaching. I even host a comic book club at my school which is a blast!

    Looking foward to working with you this semester!

    Well o’l buddy… I guess I’ll comment on your page. Other blog pages do not seem to have the comments options enabled. Here’s to another semester and teaching alongside one of the Greats. You are so lucky you get to do that…

      It has been and continues to be my honor to lock arms with you and fight the forces of evil and mediocrity.
