Sean Wybrant currently crafts tomorrow's heroes in his classroom by teaching students to critically think and solve problems through computer science and video game development.
At a young age, Sean was convinced that superheroes were real, and that belief has been bolstered seeing the challenges that students are willing to tackle and solve. In his first seven years in the classroom, Sean facilitated the application of English and language arts competencies with a service learning approach. Sean earned a position as a Lead Educator in his district's Next Generation Learning work through those projects where he helped draft the Colorado Springs School District 11 vision.
In 2012 Sean began his work in Career and Technical Education where he is dedicated to designing, implementing, and evolving cutting edge practice for students through his classes so they can impact the world in positive ways while still in school. Students in his programs create augmented and virtual reality simulations, explore live-action motion capture, and are immersed in a variety of other technologies. In 2017 he was selected as Colorado's Teacher of the Year.
Sean has also led numerous professional development sessions around Next Generation Learning strategies, technology use in the classroom, personalized learning, and service learning over his career. He has presented at the International Society for Technology in Education annual conference, Colorado Education Initiative Showcase, and Denver Comic Con. He is available for speaking engagements, consulting work, and professional development opportunities.
Sean believes that teachers have the most awesome responsibility in our society, that of crafting the heroes of the future.
