Learning at Hand
Council Bluffs, Iowa
Meet Tony Vincent, a seasoned educator and innovator. Tony's journey began 25 years ago when he started teaching 5th grade in Omaha, Nebraska. Tony's passion for education technology eventually led him to become self-employed, and he now speaks at conferences and works with teachers and students worldwide. Despite this, he has always remained committed to his roots in teaching, as evidenced by his return to the 5th grade classroom during the 2018-2019 school year.

During that year, Tony's students became Chromebook superusers and creative communicators. This experience led him to develop Shapegrams, a series of lessons and drawing challenges aimed at helping students become better digital artists and thinkers.

Currently, Tony is an occasional substitute teacher, and he continues to be a speaker and consultant. Beyond his work, Tony is a proud father of 10-year-old twins, who keep him on his toes and inspire him to continue exploring ways to reach and empower learners. Whether he's in the classroom or on the conference stage, Tony's energy and passion for teaching are infectious, and his insights and expertise are invaluable to anyone looking to bring innovation and creativity to their educational practice.
