This podcast features a recording of Kevin Honeycutt’s presentation on April 26, 2007, at the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) annual conference, “Know the Child, Optimize Learning” in Wichita, Kansas. The title of Kevin’s session was “Building 21st Century Achievers.” The conference program description was: We all teach kids and try to prepare them for a successful future, but what does that mean today? Join as we delve into the specifics of what it will mean to have the tools for success in the 21st Century. We’ll explore digital tools and their seamless use in our classrooms. It’s time to stop trying to teach technology and begin to teach with technology. Visit Kevin’s website at

    Thank you so much for recording this session and sharing it! I had the opportunity to listen to it during my commute to work this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. Amazing how technology allows us to ‘attend’ conferences that are far away from us in the comfort of our cars!

    Kevin’s session is powerful. He’s definitely an engaging speaker, but his message needs to be heard by all educators. We can’t keep running from the technology (blocking sites, etc). Educators need to let kids tap into these technologies and guide them as they do.

    Thanks again for sharing this!

    Great talk. Highly recommended.
    While listening to his talk I began to wonder about how teachers like Kevin actually leave the classroom and go do something else, because they were so wonderful as teachers. (Didn;t he say he works for some other group?)
    Anyway, it is sad to me that these great models of technology teaching are often enticed to move on out of the classroom.

    However, this talk is amazing; like listening to an encyclopedia on speed.

    I am lmaking all of my staff listen to it.
