Kevin is the author of The 20time Project: How Educators can Launch Google's Formula for Future-Ready Innovation, Code In Every Class: How All Educators Can Teach Programming, and Teaching Future-Ready Students. Kevin is optimistic about the future because he believes many of the world's most pressing problems can be solved by current students who have access to great teachers and breakthrough technology. 

Kevin also likes to speak to people. He has keynoted around the world to tens of thousands of individuals about project based learning, coding in schools, and how technology will transform education.
In my 20 year teaching career, I've never seen a speaker as inspiring as Kevin talking about the work his students do.  --Participant, Sydney Opera House Schools of the Future Conference
Kevin is a Google Apps Certified Trainer and a Google Certified Teacher based in Monterey, California. He has trained a wide variety of groups and individuals to use Google and other tools to save time, increase collaboration, and enjoy technology. Seriously. 

He is also a high school teacher at York School, and helps teachers there use technology as the Director of Technology. Fancy title for a fancy man. Kevin also serves on the board of trustees for the International School of Monterey.

Kevin regularly gives lectures, talks, keynotes (whatever you want to call them) to schools, businesses, organizations about how we can put computers to work for us. They're so easily tricked into doing our most annoying work, and they can also empower us to delight ourselves with creative work. 

Kevin has experience working with students, teachers, professors, administrators, realtors, nuns, priests, accountants, lawyers, and animal welfare specialists, and if you're not one of these people, he can probably work with you just fine anyway.

Obviously it gives me a sense of their writing and presentation skills, but more importantly it allows me to know who they are. Here's the prompt I give them: Your first formal assignment is to compose and present a short introduction so I may better get to know you. I'm only looking for a two minute introduction.

I'd like to get a sense of who you are and what your voice is. Not sure what to write? No problem ... here are some ideas to help get you started: What are you passionate about? What are some of your goals for the year? For your life? What is the most important physical object in your life? (take a photo of it and bring it to class) What is y

Back the book: The 20 Time Project

Later this month I plan to launch a Kickstarter campaign for a book I will finish this summer. The working title is The 20 Time Project: How educators and parents can follow Google's formula for supercharged innovation . Before I actually launch the campaign, I'm looking for pre-backers so when I do go live, the Kickstarter page isn't sad and lonely. For a $15 pledge, you will get a copy of the book (signed or unsigned depending on whether you want my ink on it). For more, you will get more. Here are my commitments: May 1 launch Kickstarter Campaign June 1 close Kickstarter Campaign with at least $3,000 raised July 1  draft finished September 1 send book to publisher (I plan to distribute the book on my own, through the Kindle store, and through Amazon) October 1 ship books and rewards to backers  Some of you can expect to hear from me directly, so beware. If you're willing to be a pre-backer, please let me know in the comments, through email (brookhous
