The Squirrels team had a busy February coordinating Edcamp sponsorships around the country. South Dakota was first on our list in February followed by Edcamp Phoenix and Edcamp T-County.
Nearly 300 educators, administrators, tech coordinators and more attended these Edcamps to discuss the latest industry trends, as well as challenges that are faced in the classroom.
One of our Alpha Squirrels, Travis Lape, organized Edcamp South Dakota! We’re lucky to have ambassadors from all over the globe in the EdTech community representing our company and our products. Travis is also organizing another Edcamp in South Dakota for April.
Edcamp T-County was in our neck of the woods— Northeast Ohio. We had two members of the Squirrels team attend and soak up how teachers are (or are not) using technology in their classroom.
Although we were not able to attend Edcamp Phoenix, we were able to follow their Twitter feed throughout the day to see how everyone collaborated together.
If you weren’t able to attend any of the Edcamps this month, here are some of the popular discussion topics:
- Foldables in the classroom
- Google classroom
- High school technology training in the classroom
- One-to-one tech strategies
- Chrome extensions and google add-ons
- Technology integration
- Social media in the classroom
- Flipped classroom
We hope that all the Edcamps we sponsored this month provided each attendee with a positive experience full of learning and professional development!
