edcamp LA is Getting Close (July 9)

On Saturday July 9th on the campus of UNO the first Louisiana unconference will take place. As one of the organizers, I proudly present edcampLouisiana. What, no thunderous applause? Oh, you don’t know what an unconference is and you’ve never heard of an edcamp. Well, not so no ago I stood right where you are standing now – with the same confused look on my face too.

Unconferences like edcamp and TeachMeet have been springing up all over the country. I had originally thought I would host a TeachMeet in New Orleans, but when Valerie Burton, another STAR in my district approached me and asked about organizing an edcamp I decided to join her efforts. The rest of our team includes: Brian Mull, Director of Innovation with November Learning; Tiffany Whitehead, Teacher Librarian in Baton Rouge; and Carl Gaines, a high school teacher from Violet.

I will be updating this blog as edcamp draws nearer, but today I just wanted to get your gears turning. I am starting out with a little history quiz. Do you know where the first edcamp was held? Do you know who the co-founders were? Better yet, do you follow any of them of Twitter? Oops, that’s not a history question. Well just head on over here to get the answers.

Oh, and don’t forget we have a date. Mark your calendars for July 9th. It will be an experience like no other.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful article. It is also my belief that mesothelioma has an incredibly long latency period of time, which means that signs and symptoms of the disease may well not emerge right up until 30 to 50 years after the first exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common variety and impacts the area about the lungs, may cause shortness of breath, chest pains, along with a persistent cough, which may bring about coughing up blood vessels.
