So a couple of my local Twitter/EdCamp teacher friends (@iplante and @robpennington9) and I decided that we needed an EdCamp for South West Connecticut, or EdCampSWCT. And while I was on Twitter one day last fall, I discovered a few other teachers (@mr_hutchinson_ @MrPardalis @mrsapia-teach @Rodrig444 and @Swanny203) who wanted to plan a local EdCamp in SouthWest Connecticut, so, we joined forces!
The best way we found to communicate and plan is to use Voxer. Voxer is a free walkie-talkie app available in the iTunes store or Google Play. You can communicate through walkie-talkie messages, text or photos. We have planned this entire EdCamp with Voxer, a little bit of emailing, and a few documents/sheets in Google Drive. (And I need to mention that Rob did all the work to set up our location in Norwalk! Thanks, Rob :) Pretty awesome.
So if you are in the Tri-state area (CT, NY, NJ) or, if you a bit EdCamp crazy like I am, join us on Saturday, March 7th, 8:15am-1:00pm in Norwalk, CT for the first EdCampSWCT!
