About the Presenter – Kevin Honeycutt

Kevin HoneycuttKevin Honeycutt grew up in poverty and attended school in many places, including Kansas. 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 in K-12 Kansas public schools, served as a school board member, and for 17 years spent summers leading creative adventure camps for kids of all ages.

In 1991 he received the Making IT Happen Award, an internationally recognized awards program for educators and leaders in the field of educational technology integration, commitment and innovation in K–12 schools. The program identifies and rewards educational technology.

During iCamp we will explore the idea of teachers as explorers and the idea of taming technology tools so we can use them in education along with traditional materials to build and construct.

A presenter with worldwide reach, Kevin presents to over 100,000 educators, students and business people every year. He has been an Apple Distinguished Educator since 2011 and has over 65,000 followers on Twitter and 2 million+ views on his YouTube channel.

Kevin will be leveraging technology as well as traditional learning in this hands-on collaborative workshop. You will leave with new skills and new ideas to implement into your classroom. Come prepared to have an amazing day of learning and collaboration.
