About Scott Ford

Welcome!

My name is Scott Ford,M.Ed., and I have been an educator for over 16 years. I have had the honor of teaching and developing courses for high schools, colleges, the FBI, DEA, and CIA.

I have been speaking to groups around the United States about technology, educational technology, and public policy. In addition to my speaking engagements, my popular YouTube channel (mrfordsclass) is seen by students all around the globe.

While working for the FBI, I developed a web based training that was sent and reviewed by President Obama and Congress. I worked for the CIA re-imaged on-line training and became a template for future WBTs.
