Come Experience Podstock 2011


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.

  1. I am very excited about attending my first Podstock this year! It will be very exciting. I did get to participate in a little bit of a post-Podstock last year. My colleagues had been there and written a song about Podstock and I had to sing for it. I feel that this is a great opportunity for all!

    • Hi Anthony! Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. I hear only great things about Podstock, and knowing Kevin, I have no reservations about recommending this conference. I hope I get to attend the 2011 Podstock and if not 2011, hopefully 2012. That is my next professional goal – to attend a Podstock conference!

  2. Podstock is an amazing conference! I felt the atmosphere was more like a ‘family reunion’ of educators, friends, and learners all sharing and interacting, with a common purpose. See you there!

    • Hi Jan! Thank you so much for taking time to leave me a comment on my blog! I hope we get to head over to Podstock this summer and I have heard awesome things and want to experience all that is Podstock. Talk with you later!
