The only thing Tony Vincent likes better than teaching is learning. He enjoys technology because it continually gives him something new to learn. Since 1998 he’s been a pioneer in digital learning, having a class website where his fifth graders in Omaha, Nebraska shared their writing, art, and projects with the world. In 2001 he had a 1:1 classroom full of Palm Pilots, and in 2004 he started one of the first podcasts by kids.
Today Tony Vincent lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa and works as a self-employed consultant. He’s on a mission to help teachers be their best by connecting them with technology. He has traveled to 41 states, Canada, Australia, England, and the Caribbean to facilitate workshops and to make presentations. Tony has authored books, produced videos, created infographics, co-developed an iPad app, and blogged about learning and technology. You can find his work online at learninginhand.com. And, if you spend a little time with Tony, you’re likely to hear about his twins, who turn 4 in December.
