Addressing the Needs of Technology Education

Interhack founder Matt Curtin will discuss the education needs for technology students at the 2007 itWORKS.OHIO annual conference in Columbus.

Interhack's Matt Curtin will present on the educational needs for students headed toward careers in information technology at the Ohio Department of Education's itWORKS.OHIO Conference in Columbus, Ohio, on April 18-19, 2007.


Curtin will participate in three sessions at this year's conference.

  • Why Security Matters: a discussion of architecture and a demonstration of breach through WiFi vulnerability.
  • Why Care About Business Process: a panel discussion on the need for technologists to understand how to work with the rest of the business and how teachers need to present such material to students.
  • The IT Business Process Discussion: a panel discussion on managing information technology efforts and working with the rest of the business.


itWORKS.OHIO is a broad-based educational response to Ohio's need for a skilled information technology workforce. The Joint Council of the Ohio Board of Regents and the State Board of Education developed the Ohio Information Technology Competency Profile, which provides guidance for IT training in the state, and is the framework supporting itWORKS.OHIO.
