During his sabbatical in 2015, he worked with teachers at a newcomer high school to flip the math curriculum.
Kevin co-authored international research that led to the development of the Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs) (https://www.learntechlib.org/p/181966/), which have impacted teacher education and the preparation of teacher candidates. He contributed to and co-edited two books, Online Teaching in K–12: Models, Methods, and Best Practices for Teachers and Administrators (2016) published by Information Today and Championing Technology Infusion in Teacher Preparation: A Framework for Supporting Future Educators (2020) published by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
