Welcome Dean Shareski, Co-Convener

We are pleased to officially announce the addition of Dean Shareski to our K12Online08 co-convener team! Dean will be working to fill the shoes of Lani Ritter-Hall, who served as a tireless volunteer for K12Online since its inception in 2006. We will dearly miss Lani, who has decided to step down from her leadership role in K12Online because of other commitments, but are enthused to welcome Dean to our leadership team.

Dean is a Digital Learning Consultant for Prairie South School Division in Saskatchewan, Canada, and an advocate for the use of social media in the classroom. To that end he works with teachers and students in exploring ways to make learning relevant, authentic and engaging. He also is a part time sessional lecturer for the University of Regina. He is celebrating his 20th year as an educator. Dean blogs at Ideas and Thoughts from an EdTech.

Welcome Dean! 🙂

    Congratulations Dean! While I’m very sorry to see Lani step down after the amazing work she’s done over the last few years, I can’t think of anyone better to fill her shoes. Good on ya!

    Looking forward to another great event this year!
