Professional Development Opportunities

This summer I came across a Tweet about Edcamp Global. I decided to sign up for it since I've attended other local Edcamps and found them very useful. I wasn't disappointed! I made a lot of great connections, and learned some new things that I hope to use this school year. Because I registered for Edcamp Global, I just got an email about another opportunity to participate in Edcamp Global Classroom. It sounds like a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into other classrooms around the world and possibly even for my students and I to share some of the projects that we are working on. Of course I signed up right away!


I am happy that there are so many professional development opportunities out there besides the traditional ones that are offered by school districts. While many of those are useful, many of them are not. They can be expensive and a waste of time that could be better spent working in the classroom on grades, lessons, etc...
