#EdCampAwesome Lives Up to It’s Name!

Never have I left an EdCamp without feeling inspired. Since very 1st @EdCampHouston gave me an initial introduction to this form of PD a few years ago, I’ve gone to so many I no longer keep count of where & when. @EdCampAwesome in Royse City was no exception - more than living up to its name. No doubt there will be more awesomeness at upcoming @EdCampNavasota in April! Here is a scrapbook of personal highlights from #EdCampAwesome!

  • Connecting with @mkwaldie!: Overhearing her mention Google SketchUP in passing as I was heading out of a session on Makerspaces, I stopped to ask her more about it since recently my free license information through TCEA came through. She shared her classes’ 3-D Digital Modeling site & projects with me which she was very passionate about.  Now we are planning to connect our classes & students to share their work in the near future as a result!
  • Discovering Global Cardboard Challenge: Event with opportunity for children to build whatever they can imagine out of simple materials and in the process, develop problem solving, collaboration, and other 21st century skills. Since 2012, 105,000 children in 62 countries have participated & next challenge kicks off in 2015!
  • Experiencing Augmented Reality: Level of engagement & learning potential in all kinds of AR Apps was phenomenal, as was Symbaloo & hands-on presentation by @JaimeDonally

  • Finding wisdom and helpful advice about PBL in K-2: @AllisonHoganEDU Great Pikochart summary by @ChelseaSerio of key takeaways from discussion of her Kindergarten projects HERE

  • Winning a Little Bits Base Kit!  are great for tinkerers age 8 to infinity. Put the screen away, play with friends and family, and snap your ideas to life.
