Currently, with over 15 years of experience in education, Bryan L. Miller’s roles as a teacher and administrator in private and public education, K-12 education, and higher education has provided him a full scope and understanding of the educational sector and has afforded him unique opportunities in the field. Experiences in curriculum design, professional development, 1:1 implementation, and strategic planning allows him to seamlessly work with all schools, with all needs.
As the Founder of #TopTechEDU, Bryan has been provided opportunities to travel across the world, work with government officials in education from other countries, and speak and keynote at conferences and schools on his favorite topics which include educational toys, tools and resources, virtual reality, student voice and choice, and many other topics built around emerging technologies in education. He is seen by the educational community as a thought leader and influencer who can bring transformative change and excitement to learning. Bryan truly loves the experiences he receives when he meets educators and students throughout his travels, and even makes time to pop into a classroom to play on the floor with students. His passion for being a teacher has remained with him always.
Currently, Bryan is the Educator Community Manager, for Wonder Workshop, the creators of Dash and Dot robots. His role at Wonder Workshop puts him in front of educators, school administration, and state leaders where he is provided opportunities to talk about the topics he is most passionate about; educational toys that promote computer science and STEM, and the importance of learning through play. His dedication, knowledge and implementation in this area of education has made Bryan a go-to expert for educators.
Previously serving as Director of Educational Technology at Pine Crest School, in Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Bryan worked to bring a fresh perspective on educational technology, through leadership, training, and professional development opportunities. He was instrumental in bringing iPads to Pine Crest, and developing and designing an authentic curriculum that truly integrates the devices. Bryan also transformed the Educational Technology Department, by adding additional educational technologists, creating a technology mentorship program, and expanding the offering of over 200 different professional development opportunities to the faculty throughout each school year.
As the school was building three new maker-spaces, Bryan was a part of the interview committee to attract and hire candidates for new positions, including maker-space coordinators, and computer science teachers. Bryan and a team of other talented educators created a state of the art computer science curriculum for the school. It is evident that Bryan’s true passion lies in educational technology, and finding unique ways to integrate technology into existing curriculum.
Originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Bryan obtained his degree from Keystone College, in La Plume, Pennsylvania. During his time at Keystone, he was given the unique opportunity, at the young age of 20, to begin his career in educational technology, as Manager of Media Services and Learning Management System Administrator (Blackboard). This experience, which offered opportunities of managing a department, budget management, training, and developing Keystone’s first online bachelor degree program, jump-started his career in ed tech and has provided him insight and practice of leadership in higher educational institutions.
After his career at Keystone College, Bryan returned to the Bucks County area where he taught Kindergarten at Breezy Point Day School, where he once went to school as a child. This brought him to the classroom, which is where he truly loves to be, and those experiences are what helps guide him in his decision making today, as a student-centered, and faculty-supporting leader.
Following Breezy Point Day School, Bryan was a teacher in Pennsbury School District, where he taught at Afton Elementary School as the kindergarten through 5th grade computer teacher. At Afton, Bryan had the opportunity to transform the traditional computer class where you originally came and spent your class period typing, to developing a curriculum that truly integrated the classroom curriculum into his technology classes.
Outside of his busy daily career, Bryan loves visiting with other schools and making connections with other educators. He speaks at many conferences, works with many schools throughout the country, is active on Twitter and other social media, and can often be found sitting at home, in his backyard by a lake in Florida, working on his many training resources. He loves the opportunities that has been provided to him through the years, and uses his experience to help guide other schools in technology implementation, curriculum design, and innovative practices.
