We were debriefing EdCampME at the afterparty and everyone agreed this was our best one yet. The sessions were wide and varied and there were so many great tweets and ideas. Along with scheduled sessions, there was a Makerspace with challenges and a Minecraft lab. We had 40 people who were first timers, and 9 who had attended 5 or more Edcamps. We had a large number of pre-service and first year teachers, thanks to @edcampWME who started the wonderful idea of reaching out to that community.
I facilitated two sessions on Google Cardboard. Participants were excited and we talked about ideas for how to use them in the classroom. Feel free to contribute to the ideas shared so far. Here's my collection of Cardboard activities, it's a work in progress.
