Since 2003 Kevin has been a Technology Integration Specialist at ESSDACK, an educational service center based in Hutchinson, Kansas. At ESSDACK he researches and designs programs, training and staff development with a strong passion for helping teachers and learners become successful with educational uses of technology. He was a school board member for his small town which he feels informs his understanding of school needs.
Kevin feels that one of his most important roles is to help vision what the future holds for learners and to help move schools in positive, new directions. During his classroom tenure, he developed project-based approaches to learning that infused technology and problem solving skills. He created a film program for kids and developed it into a fully functioning curriculum at the high school level. He co-developed a PBL approach called the Life Practice Model with colleague Ginger Lewman and they provide training in this powerful, student driven approach to learning.
