Kevin Honeycutt - Keynote Speaker
Tuesday General Session + 2 Breakout Sessions on Tuesday
Kevin Honeycutt is a technology integrationist and a staff developer from Central Kansas. He spent 13 years teaching K-12 art and now travels the country and the world sharing ideas with educators. His website kevinhoneycutt.org is a valued treasure house of resources for educators.
Kevin grew up in poverty and attended school in many cities across the United States. As he witnessed education around the country he collected powerful experiences that still influence his conversations and his work with educators. He spent 13 years teaching art K-12 in public school and for 17 years spent summers leading creative adventure camps for kids of all ages. In 1991 he received the Making IT Happen Award which is an internationally recognized awards program for educators and leaders in the field of educational technology integration in K-12 schools. The program identifies and rewards educational technology leaders around the world for their commitment and innovation. In 2011 he became an Apple distinguished educator and he continues to train students and teachers in the use of Apple’s powerful learning tools. In his life he’s gone from being an at-risk kid doing stints in foster care to traveling the globe talking to audiences of educators, business people and kids.
In this presentation I share many ideas and resources as well as real student and teacher examples of what can happen when we empower programs with today's tools and a little creative spark. You'll see student designed products and get ideas for germinating or reinvigorating programs where you teach!
Deeper dive into keynote with time for an audience Q & A session
In this presentation for kids, teachers or educational leaders I explore the idea of Digital Legacy. This notion that everything people publish is forever associated with them is powerful and important and we can’t wait to start shaping student thinking around it.
