What Happens at EdCamp...Some Details Revealed

So y'all heard..I am going to camp!!! Cool!

Not that camp...although...I admit...Wednesday is beginning to grow on me...

EdCamp is the word on the street. I am beginning to find my new heaven. The "out of the box" style is appealing and working with passionate educators is always a plus...

NO silly, that is Kristy Swanson...

I am talking about Kristen Swanson..the organizer of EdCamp Philly!

Here she is giving a TEDx TALK.

I love this Edcamp model...It's seems to be like Porch Talk (which in my family is the talk you have as you are know when you end up on the porch talking for an extra hour!)
That extra talk...the informal, powerful stuff that unintentionally is the best discussion that you have ever had! I think...that's Edcamp.

(Trivia: Amanda in the orange swimsuit, from the first video played Harmony in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer T.V. show...isn't that a coincidence?)

Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!
