Dr. Jason Ohler is a speaker, writer, teacher, researcher and lifelong digital humanist who is well known for the passion, insight and humor he brings to his presentations and writings. He is author of numerous articles, books, and teacher resources and continues to work directly with teachers, administrators and students. Combining twenty-five years of experience in the educational technology field with an eye for the future, Jason connects with people where they are, and helps them see their importance in the future development of living, learning and working in the Digital Age. Although he is called a futurist, he considers himself a nowist, working nationally and internationally to help educators and the public use today's tools to create living environments that we are proud to call home.
Jason is first and foremost a storyteller, telling tales of the future that are grounded in the past. He clearly loves what he does, and loves sharing what he knows with others.
"The goal is the effective, creative, and wise use of technology...to bring together technology, community and learning in ways that work. And while we are at it, to have fun."
