The Annual CUE 2013 Conference in March is the premier educational technology and professional development event in California.
CUE’s Annual 2013 Conference “CUE to the Core” has two of the powerhouses of education technology and professional development, providing what promises to be an innovative and enriching experience. Sir Ken Robinson will provide the opening keynote and Kevin Honeycutt will close the event.
Kevin Honeycutt is often referred to as the “Robin Williams” of Education Technology so be prepared to be entertained. Conference attendees will be educated, amazed, amused and energized by Kevin’s presentation “Trends, Tools and Tactics for 21st Century Learning.” The closing keynote is a fun look at the exciting things that happen when educators step outside their boxes and try new tools. It reinforces the importance of relationships while encouraging teachers to become learners again through positive examples of student success.
Kevin spent 13 years teaching K-12 art in public school and for 17 years spent summers leading creative adventure camps for kids of all ages. For the past four years, he has hosted a creative learning site called Art Snacks where he shares 150+ ten minute drawing videos that support standards curriculum.
This social learning network is his petri-dish to mentor teachers and students in virtual environments. He was selected to be in the Apple Distinguished Educator class of 2011 and spends time helping schools get the most out of Apple’s powerful tools.
Sir Ken Robinson, the opening keynote speaker, will be presenting a unique talk created especially for CUE conference attendees. Robinson’s 2006 and 2010 TED talks have been seen by an estimated 200 million people in more than 150 countries. He is known the world over for his tremendous message regarding creativity and innovation and their rightful place within both the education and business realms. Governments, Fortune 500 companies and cultural organizations have honored him for his work in this area.
