Michael Fricano II


Aloha! My name is Michael Fricano II. I have been an elementary school teacher since 2007 at a public school in Hawaii. I was a 4th/5th grade teacher from 2007 to 2010 and a Technology Coordinator from 2010 to 2014. Currently, I am serving as an Technology Integration Specialist and "Make It 101" instructor for 'Iolani School in Hawaii. I'm also the Director of Social Media & Community Engagement & Teacher Architect for The Janus Group.

I have a passion for education, technology, MakerEd, coding, reading, nature, video games, the internet, and TV.

My goal is to help provide educators and schools all over the world with the knowledge and skills to effectively integrate technology into their classrooms and to help their students become positive role models and contributors to the world (real & digital) around them.
