|Connecting and chatting and oh yeah, getting gifts!|
I was one of the, oh, say, around 1700+ educators around the country that were up and at 'em early for an all day workshop, also known as a teacher's playground, also known as EdCamp. Seems like a huge number for one day, doesn't it? That's cause there were 17 different EdCamps happening today. Today. Might have even been 18, I don't remember.
Bottom line is that once again, educators gave up a Saturday to spend time learning and sharing and connecting and growing in our profession. Profession. Like professionals. But that's another post.
|Lunch included? Thanks for that bonus treat!|
This time around one of the session I facilitated was a discussion session. It was so much fun to facilitate! The topic was homework, and those in the session included a current high school student all the way up to college professors and administrators. It was a lively, interactive, engaging conversation among professionals, and I felt so refreshed when it was over!

And of course, a HUGE thank you to all those who organized this awesome event at OU, and to all my fellow facilitators, as none of this would happen without all of the above!
Have fun reading, and if you happen to be at the next EdCamps in the area, introduce yourself! I love meeting my colleagues across the globe!
