This program is unique because its primary goal is to develop digital literacies but it does so through STEM application and through ties to grade level units of study. Dave believes that powerful learning happens when students imagine, explore curiosity, create, collaborate, and problem solve. The application of these skills form the foundation of his classroom work and are essential to developing and educating 21st Century Learners. Dave lives in Grand Rapids, Minnesota with his wife Nicole and their little Dachshund, Elsa.
