Connect Inform Inspire
We gather education technologists from around the Midwest to get connected, get informed, and get inspired.
Get Connected

The heart of BrainStorm is the exchange of ideas among fellow education technologists and Ed Tech vendors: You will learn from them, and they will learn from you. Get plugged in with other ed techs, and make connections here that last through the years.

Get Informed

With over 120 technology-focused sessions, you’ll hear from your colleagues and vendors in the K20 community. Learn new skills, and check out cutting edge products that will make your job easier!

Get Inspired

At our one-of-a-kind Vendor Fair, you’ll get one-on-one time with the biggest vendors in the education space. Talk things over, see hands-on demos, and find out if their solution is right for you.

Don't just take our word for it!

Awesome conference at a great value. Finding EdTech conferences completely geared to the network/sys admins is hard to come by. This one should be on your list.

Learn21 Ohio CoSN CTO Clinic

Another leadership opportunity is being offered during BrainStorm Sandusky this year, the Ohio CoSN CTO Clinic.  CTO Clinics are  educational technology leadership events supported by Learn21 Ohio CoSN . CTO Clinics bring together Ohio K-16 technology professionals to learn and network on the latest leadership and management challenges.  The clinic will be held Sunday May 5, 11-3pm (lunch included) at the Kalahari Convention Center.  We recommend combining this with either attending BrainStorm yourself, or bringing your team to attend BrainStorm while you attend the CoSN Clinic.


This year’s clinic is focused on Cybersecurity: How are you managing the risk?.  Participants will be shown how to manage the risk and assess their readiness. You will use the CoSN Cybersecurity Assessment tools and Cybersecurity Framework to develop and walk away with a plan for your organization.  Presenters will be William Fritz, Director of Technology at Sycamore Community Schools, Ohio CoSN Chair, Executive Director-Learn 21 as well as Dustin Ruffell, Director of Technology at Patrick-Henry Schools, CoSN CETL.  It allows you to network with leaders from around the state and the region. The cost is free, check out the agenda and register at

Brainstorm continues to be a wonderful conference for me to interact with my customers old and new. The sessions with their focus on technology attracts the perfect mix of professionals that I am looking to talk to.
