Who is Robert Lane?
“Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by technology. I loved to play games on my Atari 2600. In elementary school I worked to get time on the Apple IIe as much as I could.
When I was a teen I bought my first computer, a Commodore 64. I gamed on that computer and more. I found that I was really good at figuring out how technology worked. While in college I loved helping my classmates with using a computer to assist in the teaching field.
Early in my career I found that I loved teaching others about technology and I started teaching professional development sessions. I haven’t stopped learning new technologies and sharing that knowledge with others.“
