Today in our ‘Countdown Smackdown’ on Classroom 2.0 LIVE!, Kevin Honeycutt, and his sidekick Amy, played and sang for us using his guitar and his iPad. Kevin is always entertaining and a wealth of knowledge. We had a lot of fun and as Kevin says, any time he presents, shares, or speaks he strives to ‘create an experience’. He definitely did that this morning for us.
One way to experience that ‘experience’ is to attend Podstock 2011 on July 22 and 23, 2011 in Wichita, Kansas. What is Podstock you may ask? Well, it is one of the best experiences you will have this summer! If you visit the Podstock Ning, you can see photos of past Podstock conferences. The speakers that present at Podstock are top notch presenters and Kevin makes sure that there are plenty of virtual components for those that cannot attend in person. The photo slideshows on the Ning exhibit the fun that goes on during the conference sessions and definitely help portray the ‘Podstock experience’.
As you can see from the schedule from Podstock 2010, the topics of the breakout sessions are about current practices for educators of all content areas, backgrounds and positions. The 60’stheme is prevalent in everything related to Podstock making for a fun setting to learn about amazing instructional strategies and technology integration. I haven’t been able to attend a Podstock in person (yet!) and am working to change that in the near future – hopefully for 2011!
Kudos to ‘Kevin and the Gang’ for creating such inspiring, life-changing experiences for us. I know it takes a team of people to put on a conference of this caliber and appreciate the long hours and effort contributed by everyone to make Podstock conferences so successful.
