Last weekend, several educators from Tri-Town schools attended Edcamp North Shore at Lynnfield HS, MA.
Click on the video to see what an Edcamp is all about.
My colleagues and I attended classes on Student Help Desks, Google apps, Collaborative Learning, etc. We had an opportunity to learn about Makerspaces and how to implement them in an elementary school. There were so many great ideas that ranged from how to get a designated space and supplies to teacher buy in and implementation.
We attended an amazing presentation from high school students in the Lynnfield HS Makerspace. They told us how it is staffed and showed us all of the projects that are done throughout the year. Included in this picture are some of the stations that students can work in as well as a prom dress made of duct tape.
Edcamps are always a great professional development opportunity! We had a blast!
