Speaker/Presenter Credentials:

Dr. Howie DiBlasi was recognized as “Vocational Teacher of the Year” for the State of Arizona and nominated as a finalist in the “Top Secondary Leaders in America”.  He has been featured in several magazines as “A CIO that really thinks outside the box.”

He is a published author, "Change Agent", Educational Technology consultant and the Producer of the “DID YOU KNOW “ You Tube series, Versions 2-3-4-5-6.

He was recently recognized by the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (C.I.L.C) with the "Pinnacle Award" for outstanding Professional Development Programs and I.S.T.E. as the “Best of the Best” for outstanding Professional Development Programs for 2011.

Dr. DiBlasi has extensive experience in the education field, (20 years) business leader, (10 years) and as a  C.I.O.  (14 years). 

His emphasis is on Digital Technology, multi-media, Interactive Video Conferencing and 21st Century Learning. He has presented to thousands of Educational Leaders, administrators and teachers from Bangkok to Boston.

In a recent article for e-School news  “His TCEA workshop was one of the most dynamic conference presentations I have attended in some 30 years. Howie is charged with energy, willing to share, and open to suggestions.”

At the conference, I connected with Howie DiBlasi who was so incredibly passionate about educational technology, the conversations and personal connection I made with him that I will never forget. He impressed me more than he knows e!) and I will continue to follow his work from this day forward. Without him even knowing, he taught me that by loving what you do and doing what you love, you can surely make a difference.

Ron from AETC said “I can't begin to express how grateful we are for your attendance and participation.  I have received many great comments from attendees regarding the content that was presented!  I believe that this was, hands down, the best PD that we have ever had at one of our conferences.”

Great session Howie!  This is a fantastic summary of resources shared in an equally fantastic FETC virtual presentation, Howie! Hopefully, there will be many '10th persons' that step out and create or participate in global projects or collaborate with other educators around the globe. Well done and so inspiring! Kim Caise, NBCT, M.Ed.  

Howie is a member of the I.S.T.E Board of Directors, serves on the TxDLA Board, Communications Director of the I.S.T.E. Special Interest Group for Interactive Video Conferencing and a member of the Alan November Consulting Team.

Is My Life An Obligation or An Opportunity?

When my phone rings in my office, I respond to each call as an opportunity to serve, earn, learn, influence, network, encourage or teach.  A sign on my desk reads “ Obligation or Opportunity.”  The people who change the world around them –rarely act from a sense of obligation….they almost always act from a sense of incredible opportunity.  They interact with the world around them because they want to, not because they have  Those who lead effectively view the circumstances around them as opportunities not obligations.

 Genuine, authentic leadership infuses meaning into your life, because you know that your efforts count and that you are serving the needs of others as well as your own.  You can help, influence and inspire those around you.2

 In August of 2006 Karl Fisch shared a Power Point with me about our changing world and the impact of the “New Global Economy”.  karl suggested a book by Thomas Friedman book, “The World Is Flat”.   I then came across an old 1986 commercial called “Think Different”.  For me that week was life changing.  All the pieces came together on changing the way we teach our “Digital Natives” in the classroom.   The commercial content included snapshots of people who changed the world and the concluding statement was….”People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do”.  You can download or view the commercial on my web site.  

 I created the “Did You Know 2-3-4-5-6" series,  video to challenge educators around the world to “Think Different”.  There have been over 729,000 views on YouTube of Version 2,3,4,5,and 6 over the past year, presentations at 87 conferences and over 5,000 attendees that have carried the message back to their school district.  The intent is for you to view and then share the PowerPoint and start on a journey of teaching our “Digital Kids” differently.  Have a discussion with your peers, administrators, parents and school board members and help “Change The World, one teacher at a time.” I have received full permission to use the music that is included with the “Did You Know” videos.  If necessary I will provide you with the verification..Full disclosure is contained in the first slide of “Did You Know”.

 Mark Sandborn said it best, “ People who take an active leadership role in their lives tend to be good thinkers…Great leaders tend to be GREAT THINKERS”.

 Enjoy…..      “If You Want Change…Be The Change”
