Edcamp: It All Started with a Tweet

Educator Innovator

I was an early adopter of Twitter as a means of connecting with other educators, thanks in large part to Will Richardson and Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach. Thanks to the Twitter world, I jumped right in and have never looked back. One moment, following Twitter changed my life!

2 Unconferences in 2 Days: EdCamp Honolulu and EdCampOnline -- Part 1 of 2

mauilibrarian2 in Olinda

I hadn''t ever been to an EdCamp before, so to attend two in two days was quite amazing. One event was in person, the other was online (a first not only for me, but for edcamps!). So this is Part I: mainly about the resources I gathered at EdCamp Honolulu , October 19, 2013.

How Teachers Can Learn From One Another at Unconferences, Meet-ups and Edcamps

MindShift

If you’re looking for something more formal, the same kind of gathering can take place at a school site, ideally one with Wi-Fi and at least a few accessible classrooms. You’ll also need several classrooms for the sessions, Wi-Fi access, and available restrooms.

Twitter Equals Growth Mindset?

The Principal of Change

This could be something to applied the idea of educators using Twitter. The “growth mindset” is the openness to learning about the medium, but the idea of the “innovator’s mindset” leads to people creating hashtags to share things that are happening in their classroom, or using it to connect with educators that teach the same discipline as they do. It is probably one of the reasons why Twitter moved from the idea of “what are you doing”, to “what’s happening” in the update box.

#EdcampHOME is Where the Heart is. for Learning

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

Creating Change

The Principal of Change

Yesterday, the “Global Day of Design” happened ( #GDD16 on Twitter ) and over 450 schools took part in this an amazing opportunity. One of things that I have been really thinking about is not only embracing change, but educators creating it.

The Importance of Andragogy in Education

My Island View

A question that haunts me however, at almost any education conference that I attend is: Why are so many (not all) of these educators, who are so skilled in a classroom of kids, so bad at teaching in a room full of adults for professional development? It is probably the key to the success of the Edcamp movement. All of the Edcamp sessions are guided conversations. It is also a key factor in the Education Twitter chats that happen globally around the clock.

The SUM of an Amazing Summer

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

When I look at how much I have evolved as a professional educator in the past year, I am astounded at the exponential rate at which I have learned so much from the talented educators I''ve had the pleasure of collaborating and interacting with on Twitter, Edmodo, and this blog. Sounds redundant, "professional educator," but really it isn''t--everything I have been doing has been outside of the classroom, yet still grounded in my teaching practice.
