Several of EdCamp DV-IS’ organizers had the opportunity to go to ISTE last week at the PA Convention Center. It was a great experience, and one of the highlights was getting a chance to connect with other EdCamp organizers from across the nation. About fifty or so educators met in true EdCamp fashion, where we all got a chance to ask our questions, find common topics to discuss about the best practices of running an EdCamp, and broke out into smaller groups to have our conversations. We learned a great deal and left reassured that the “magic of EdCamp” would happen and that organic discussions would be sparked at EdCamp.
Many thanks to the awesome leaders at the EdCamp Foundation. We were so fortunate to meet and connect with Hadley Ferguson (@hadleyjf), Kim Sivick (@ksivick), Brooke Mulartrick (@brookem1015), who live in the Philly area! AND of course, Kristen Swanson (@kristenswanson)! Thank you so much for all your wise words, support and advice!
