Wired Educator Andy LosikKelly interviews Andy Losik about his new book, Stay in the Game, sharing his knowledge of technology annually on a local television news program, working with amazing corporations focused on helping education, and providing quality professional development for educators. Andy and Kelly also discuss being the all-around "helpful tech guy," a role many wired educators know very well. Andy is a great teacher, a great guy, and has really expanded his impact as an educator. This is a great interview for all educators. You will be inspired to expand your classroom and discover many ways to make an even bigger impact and improve your lifestyle. 

Andy Losik has been teaching for 21 years in a variety of elementary school settings. For fifteen of those years, he has taught the elementary Infotech program by combining technology and literacy skills in Hamilton, Michigan. Andy is a STAR Discovery Educator, a Google Education Certified Innovator, and Apple Distinguished Educator as well as the 2009 Michigan Tech-Educator of the Year. Along with his classroom duties, Andy oversees online learning at Hamilton High School serves as a technology "helpful guy" in his school district and across the country for private, public, and charter schools. He has also provided insight for companies like Disney, Sifteo, Sony and most recently joined a special team at Discovery Education that works to advise and promote its many corporate partner educational initiatives. First and foremost Andy is a husband and dad who loves his family, fishing, and football as much as he loves the techie stuff.

Andy's new book, Stay in the Game, is about Jared Veldheer. Jared is one of the top left tackles in the National Football League but very little of his path to the Arizona Cardinals is what you might expect.

Stay in the Game follows Jared’s journey of being a brainy, over-sized kid who often found it hard to fit in to an athlete discovering his many talents. It didn’t “just happen” though and without a core set of principles in his life, it never would have. Sometimes the best thing you can do is “Stay in the Game.”

It took author Andy Losik and Jared’s parents nearly five years to complete, but “Stay in the Game” is now available in paperback and eBook.

The book targets older kids and the casual football fan but the hardcore pigskin geek will have plenty of material as it also details a lot of the recruiting process, training for the NFL Combine and Draft, as well as some of the inner workings of how the League and teams operate.
