About Ben Sondgeroth

Ben Sondgeroth serves as the LTC’s lead Regional Educational Technology Coordinator. Ben began his career as a history teacher in Morrison, IL where he initiated and coordinated the district’s iPad pilot program, redesigning the curriculum to effectively integrate the new technology. During this time, he developed a passion for sharing with other teachers exciting new ways to use technology in education.

Now working for the Illinois Learning Technology Center, his focus is on helping schools and districts in Illinois leverage digital learning effectively. He has presented at regional and national conferences such as FETC, ISTE, ICE, and many more.

Share Your Story, Your Way: Building your Classroom, Club, or School Brand

Branding is everywhere – in the products you buy and the content you consume online. Having an effective brand helps companies share their story, connect with their audience, and achieve their goals. But branding isn’t just for graphic designers and CEOs – educators can create their own personal brand to connect with their students and tell the stories of their classrooms and schools.
