If you were one of the nearly 140 lucky people to attend the first EdCampMidMN you were at a truly unique event right here in central Minnesota. The event followed the EdCamp format. This means the event was completely free and followed the unconference model where participants decided the content and shaped the conversations. CMLE was an event sponsor, and CMLE staff were lucky enough to attend this fast-paced, open format. Besides in the “classrooms,” many of our conversations took place in hallways and at impromptu moments. From Makerspaces to Gamification, subjects from across the board were covered.
“I appreciate all you did to make this day happen. What an exemplary collaborative bunch you are! Your work sparked a lot of fires today.” – EdCamp Attendee
The event was put on by local educators and they knocked it out of the park! The best part, is that the content is still available on their website. Organizers promised a round 2 for next year, so take a look at the 2015 materials and get ready for next year!
