Construction and the inability to find the building initially didn't keep me away. (Luckily, I could park, walk, and find good on-foot navigators on campus.)
Why, EdCamp Baltimore!
I've proven to be a bit of an EdCamp addict here in the past. It is an amazing kind of professional development that grows right around the participants who then turn leaders and fellow collaborators.
--My last session was a combo deal session including the ideas of Makerspace, PBL, STEM [Science, Technology, Enginieering, and Math], STEAM [STEM with arts integration], experiential learning, and outdoor education. This served as a great way to make a lot of connections between many sides of the similar active-oriented learning activities. The Google Doc for that was chock-filled with resources! (See session 4 for that link here.)
Truly, this is just a mere snippet and the tip of my #EdCampBmore experience.
Another great reference is the Smackdown link...where participants share a quick mention of a website or teaching tool of inspiration.
