About the Author

Scott McLeod, an associate professor of educational leader­ship at the University of Colorado Denver, is widely recog­nized as one of the United States' leading experts in preK-12 school technology leadership. He is the founding director of the University Council for Educational Administration's Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education, the only U.S. university center dedicated to the technology needs of school administrators. He is co-creator of the Did You Know? (Shift Happens) video series and the trudacot (technology-rich unit design and classroom obser­vation template) technology integration discussion protocol.

Scott has worked with several hundred schools, districts, universities, and other organizations and has received numerous awards for his technology lead­ership work, including the 2016 Award for Outstanding Leadership from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). In 2015, he was one of three finalists to be the director of the Iowa Department of Education. In 2011, he was a visiting faculty fellow at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Scott was one of the pivotal figures in Iowa's grassroots one-to-one computing movement, which has resulted in more than 220 school districts providing their students with powerful learning devices, and founded the annual Iowa one-to-one Institute and EdCampIowa.

Scott blogs regularly about technology leadership and shares numerous resources through his Digital Leadership Daily SMS service. Scott is a frequent keynote speaker and workshop facilitator at regional, state, national, and inter­national conferences. He has written 170 articles and other publications and is the co-editor of What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media.

Dean Shareski is the community manager for Discovery Education Canada. He taught grades 1-8 for fourteen years and spent nine years as a digital learning consultant for Prairie South School Division in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. In addition, he has taught and designed courses both at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan and at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania.

Dean's blog, "Ideas and Thoughts," consistently ranks among the top educational blogs. He also blogs for Tech and Learning and The Huffington Post. In 2010, he won the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Award for Outstanding Leader of the Year.

Dean has had the opportunity to speak to a variety of education audiences within the United States and Canada, as well as outside North America. He believes humor and humility go a long way in supporting and advocating transformational practices in teaching and learning. More importantly, his efforts to promote joyful learning and working environments remain his greatest passion.

He holds a master's degree in educational technology from the University of Saskatchewan. Dean has been married to his wife, Paula, for more than thirty years, and together they celebrate their four children and their families. When he's not teaching and sharing, you might find Dean on a golf course.
