Dan Vilter

Dan speaks about technology at homeschooling conferences, and he takes good photographs and then knows what to do with them (another technical thing, and artsy).

Dan Vilter has been enjoying his unschooling adventure with his 17 year old, never been schooled son, Matthew and his lovely and talented wife, Jocelyn. Unschooling was an easy path to take while watching Matthew learn and grow in his own direction and time from the earliest age. Dan takes pleasure in the company of other unschoolers everywhere and at the Dragontree support group (dragontree.org) in Southern California. Dan teaches theatre classes at Citrus College and is the Production Manager and Technical director at the Haugh Performing Arts Center in Glendora California where he gets to make art, entertainment, and technology come together. He is a strong advocate for the use of computers, the Internet, television and video games in a well-rounded pool of resources.
