Here's What You Missed at Edcamp Philly...

That's me sharing w/other campers.
Saturday, May 18 was partly cloudy and cool in Philadelphia, PA, but inside the Wharton School of Business at UPenn it was a sunny and awesome day. The third annual Edcamp got underway at 10 AM with session one and ended close to 4 PM with a smackdown. Having left New Jersey at 6:45 AM with my two colleagues from work, we were ready for a day of learning, sharing and discussing all topics related to technology and education. Each and every session on the schedule had a corresponding Google Doc, where everyone could contribute their ideas, comments and notes. There were two morning sessions and two in the afternoon, followed by everyone meeting in the auditorium for a smackdown, where we shared cool apps and sites with each other. I presented a session on Google Apps and Drive which grew a decent crowd and lots of great questions. There was also a premiere of the first Flocabulary Edcamp Rap.

The Edcamp movement began three years ago and has become known all over the world. Here's a list of the upcoming Edcamps. Maybe I'll see you at the next one.......
