My First Edcamp


On Saturday March 1, 2014 I will be attending my first Edcamp. This Edcamp is in Columbus, Ohio. I have to tell you I am a bit on the excited side. I have never been to an Edcamp. I have tried to go a few times, but I haven’t been able to. So this time, I am really going.  I will post my experiences here when I get back from the Edcamp.

I don’t know what to exactly anticipate with this camp. I have seen some people of twitter talking about their experiences. It all seems to be awesome. From tweets I have read teachers leave the Edcamp excited to get back in to the classroom with some of the new stuff they learned and implement it. I hope it is the same with me.

It also seems that just about every state has one, or more. If you are interested check out the links below.

So,why should you go to an Edcamp? Well, let me tell you why I am going.

  • To network with teachers from my state and from other states
  • To get new ideas for my classroom
  • Its FREE! Its on a Saturday! I don’t have to worry about school
  • To get new ideas on teaching
  • What technologies people are using in their classroom
  • For the experience

If you have a desire to check on out near you, do it. There really isn’t anything you can lose other than a good portion of a Saturday. Maybe I will see you there.
