Dan has been in K-12 education for 33 years. Originally as a highly successful secondary Science teacher winning many awards and presenting at a multitude of Conferences, Dan began to pursue a career in Instructional Technology. After a completion of his Master’s Degree Program and State of WI licensing, Dan continued his career in the School District of Onalaska as an Instructional Technology Coordinator. Through the years, Dan’s innovative ideas have brought many critical changes to the school district. Creation of the first collaborative multimedia lab for middle school students, first wireless implementation for mobile computing, a District wide training and implementation of Smart Interactive White Boards (currently over 80 staff trained and using on SmartBoards on a regular basis) and now the introduction of iOS devices through iPad integration and training. Dan’s most recent accomplishments include successfully completing the full implementation of the Apple VPP Program for iOS devices, and immediately putting into practice the deployment training of 13 Program Facilitators and 14 End Users. Dan also provides graduate level instruction focused on educational technology with staff in the Onalaska schools and is a regular at Washburn Academy. Dan also teaches Technology Enhanced Instruction at Viterbo University for the Post Baccalaureate Program. As Dan retires from the Onalaska Schools in June, he will be joining Innovative Educator Consulting and looking forward to learning more as well as sharing his knowledge and expertise around the state.

User Groups: Those attending the Institute will have the chance to continue conversations and collaboration through User Group gatherings.
