EdCamp Baltimore Reflections

EdCamp Baltimore Reflections

Saturday was the first EdCamp Baltimore, hosted by the Digital Harbor High School located along the Inner Harbor.  I left home with the sun rising in my rearview mirror, and arrived with plenty of time to get signed in and settled in.  One of the (many) things I love about edcamps is how friendly everyone attending is.  You just don’t get the cranky, uncommunicative attendees who do their best to stay in their own little bubbles,...

EdCamp NYC

EdCamp NYC

On Saturday, just a few days before Hurricane Sandy hit, I visited Manhattan for my third EdCampNYC!  I caught the train into town early that morning, and then a cab up to The School at Columbia University.  I was excited and ready for another great day of learning with fellow edcampers.  After attending so many edcamps, you get to know a lot of your fellow attendees, and it was great to see Kim, Dave, Ann, MaryBeth, Reshan, Dan, and many...

EdCamp Hagerstown

EdCamp Hagerstown

As a certified EdCamp Junkie, I was excited to attend EdCamp Hagerstown this weekend.  After our InService on Friday, Little Dog and I headed out to Maryland for the weekend.  After a 3.5 hour drive, we arrived and got settled in.  Early this morning, it was time to get up and head for EdCamp!  We were hosted by Antietam Academy, which was a beautiful venue.  The turnout was a little smaller than some of the other EdCamps I’ve been...
