This is my current bio:
Daniel Rezac is currently the Education Community Manager for Tynker Coding for Kids (Tynker.com).
This journey started with his induction into the Chicago Teaching Fellows and Americorps, joining The Illinois Computing Educators, becoming a Google Certified Innovator (2009), and building an education podcasting network which created thousands of hours of learning content. The EdReach podcasts still include some of the highest-rated K-12 podcasts on iTunes to this day.
He continues to evangelize by being the lead organizer of EdCamp Illinois and EdCamp ICE. In 2016, he organized Illinois’ first suburban Maker Faire in Palatine. Over the years, his mission has become more focused, as STEM led to STEAM, STEAM led to Computer Science, and CS led to making CS a reality for all.
I’m an educator with a focus. I have a personal mission to take education forward.
I can’t hide my bias. I’m biased toward the innovative, the forward-thinking, and to things that take media and education beyond what was previously possible. You will rarely hear me write negative reviews of products here or on other sites mostly because- what’s the point? I’ll tell you about the good stuff.
I will, however, rail against things that I believe hinder progress or take us backward or that might harm the education system. This is when I get grumpy.
Education in the media is broken, and here, in this space, I’ll do my part to patch it up.
