Professional Experience

Dr. Fronk created the Florida Tech master's degree program in computer education in 1984. He was the first instructional technologist to bring together science teachers from around the state of Florida to create the Florida Science Videodisc. This three-year program involved nearly 75 teachers and resulted in the placement of videodiscs in all K–12 schools in Florida.

Dr. Fronk was coeditor of the Florida Science Teacher (the journal of the Florida Association of Science Teachers) for three years.
