MDR School of Thought
SEPTEMBER 28, 2018
This week, we wrapped up EdNET 2018! We'd like to extend our thanks to all of our attendees, speakers, and sponsors, and we look forward to hearing your feedback and favorite moments from the conferences.

In this issue of School of Thought, our collection of articles include the sensitive topic of plagiarism in education and how technology can help; a new interview in our “understanding the industry” series; how valuable direct mail STILL is; the importance of blogging, and more.

Happy reading!

In this article series, we look at businesses who are focused in the education industry and have a compelling story to share. For this post, we’re looking at ergonomic furniture manufacturer, Ergotron, with product offerings in the EDU space that includes mobile charging carts, and mobile standing desks.

All too often, misconduct is swept under the rug and fingers are crossed, hoping it goes away and no one finds out how unprepared the school was to deal with the aftermath. Serious scandals have the potential to affect credentialing, especially for smaller private colleges.

Holy cow...EdNET is a wrap! Those who attended are giving us rave reviews, so thank you. We are taking in all your feedback and will be incorporating all the ideas in our planning of EdNET 2019. The sessions were amazing, the attendees were engaged, and the EdNET team was kept on their toes.

Look around and you'll find people aligning themselves with brands everywhere from makeup to food to educational products. It makes good sense to want people to look at your logo or company name and think good things. One of the best ways to have this happen is a well-placed sponsored blog post, or article.

I confess, I love getting mail. Obviously, everyone but the coldest Grinch-hearts among us like getting personal letters, cards, and party invitations. Teachers are no different and you could be missing out!
