Michael Dreyfus-Pai

Diocese of Oakland
Director of Educational Technology
Oakland
Here's my deal: Born and raised in Long Island, NY. Attended Columbia University, where my first "technical" job was repairing equipment for the fencing team. Attended City College and taught middle school Math in the Bronx as a New York Teaching Fellow. Became a Tech teacher, then a district Instructional Technology Specialist. Followed my wife to Berkeley and became the Tech Coordinator at Christ the King in Pleasant Hill. Now I'm the Director of EdTech for the 44 Diocese of Oakland elementary and middle schools.

I started playing with Arduino with my after school group, and learned alongside my students! Since then, I've built an automated litter box fan, keycode lock, and a talking skeleton for Halloween.

I believe in the power of technology to transform the way we all teach and learn. I've helped students learn to express themselves through digital media (video and audio), social media, coding, and engineering. I've configured more Google Apps domains and iPads than I can count. I've also taught digital literacy and data analysis (I LOVE SPREADSHEETS). Ask me about anything EdTech!
