The Session From the Black Lagoon

Educators rarely toot their own horns, yet we are often the best experts at our craft. We all have so many tips and tricks that we can share if only given the time to communicate and collaborate. In this “no topic session” your learning experience will be facilitated following the Edcamp.org model for teacher learning. We will assess the greatest needs and greatest expertise in the room and learn together. It may sound odd at first, but through sessions like this teachers have learned things they didn’t know they needed as they heard from their professional peers. Want a unique conference session, then join this “un presentation” and learn how you can facilitate this kind of learning experience with your students and school peers. I look forward to the wisdom and learning you will bring!
