I am honored to announce Steve Wozniak as a Featured Keynoter for Learning 2015, November 1 - 4 in Orlando, Florida:

Featured Keynoter: “The Woz” - Steve Wozniak - Co-Founder, Apple Computer, Innovator & Lifelong Educator

Steve Wozniak has been a Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than thirty years. He has helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products (the Apple I and II) and influenced the popular Macintosh. For his achievements at Apple, he was awarded the National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States in 1985, the highest honor bestowed on America’s leading innovators. In 2000, he was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment for single-handedly designing the first personal computer and for then redirecting his lifelong passion for mathematics and electronics toward lighting the fires of excitement for education in grade school students and their teachers. He is Chief Scientist at Primary Data and is a published author with the release of his New York Times bestselling autobiography iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon in September 2006 by Norton Publishing. In 2014, he was awarded the Hoover Medal, a prestigious honor given for “outstanding extra-career services by engineers to humanity”, and was inducted into the IndustryWeek Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
