Kevin Honeycutt

Kevin grew up in poverty and attended school in many cities across the United States. 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 K-12 in public school and for 17 years spent summers leading creative adventure camps for kids of all ages. In 1991 he received the Making IT Happen Award which is an internationally recognized awards program for educators and leaders in the field of educational technology integration in K–12 schools. The program identifies and rewards educational technology leaders around the world for their commitment and innovation. Kevin has developed online safety, anti-bullying and cyber-bullying curriculum which he shares with parents, teachers and students around the country. He certifies instructors in this curriculum and supports trainers as they go out and do this important work. His recent book, Don’t Stay Under The Couch Starbuck and The Bully is the centerpiece of his Pre-K-6 curriculum. He continues to work with schools to develop innovative, engaging curriculum to better prepare learners for the world they will face when they graduate. He is passionate about meeting the needs of at-risk learners and works with kids in juvenile detention, developing approaches to re-engage the “lost” learner. Kevin travels the country and the world speaking at conferences and working with educators at the grassroots level and likes to promote a “tradigital” approach to education.

Laptops Vs. Chromebooks: What You Need To Know

Both Laptops and Chromebooks can motivate students to learn through independent study and more in-depth student discussions in the classroom. Now-a-days, Laptops and Chromebooks are more cost efficient than library books and make it easier to assess student progress.The big question that rattles everyone’s brain is always: what’s the difference? Laptops Laptops, also known as notebooks, are basically portable computers. Most everything that you find within a desktop (keyboard, webcam, mouse) are combined together to create a portable computer in a single unit. Today the term Laptop is used to Full-size Laptops, notebooks, tablets and other rugged devices. The great thing about Laptops is that you have the ability to download Microsoft and Apple applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, iTunes, and Photostop). Laptops come with a keyboard, big screen, and great screen resolution. A keyboard is essential to those who don’t like to type on touchscreens that are found on some of the newer technology (i.e tablets). Since most screen sizes are normally 13 inches or larger, Laptops provide you with a much larger screen for viewing photos, browsing the web, or creating documents. If you’re looking for a portable desktop that is capable of browsing the web, creating spreadsheets through Excel, listening to music on iTunes, streaming movies, and much more then you’re probably more of a laptop person!

Chromebooks Chromebooks are essentially mini Laptops- only with different features. One of the many great advantages of Chromebooks is the price! Chromebooks can cost half or sometimes even a third of the price of a laptop, but depending on what it’s being utilized for it can come with some disadvantages. Chromebooks are powered by Google, which means you do not receive nor can you download any Microsoft applications such as Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. You also can’t download any Apple applications such as iTunes or Photoshop. However, there are many different chrome applications available for download (many for free). The applications are great and many can be used offline. Chromebooks are virtually hack free- meaning it is virtually impossible for viruses and other unwanted bugs to hack into your browser. If you’re an individual who uses a computer simply to check emails, surf the web, and use some basic applications- the a Chromebook seems like an awesome choice for you. If you’re worried about the lack of Microsoft application (especially Word) Google docs is a great alternative. But if you’re someone who needs things like iTunes and Powerpoint and more advanced browsing options then a Laptop is a better investment for you!
