Saturday was my third #EduCampAKL and well worth the caffeine
fuelled drive up from Hamilton to Epsom Girls Grammar School.
There were lots of new faces, plenty of familiar ones and a few online
friends that it was great to meet face to face for the first time.
Full House at Epsom Girls Grammar School
It was a full house, populated by eager teachers/learners who saw the
value in giving up their free time to connect with like minded
colleagues from across the education sectors. It was a day to
further our understandings of third millenium pedagogy and the new tools that might be used to engage students and promote effective learning.
PD is often seen as something that is done to teachers (not always
the case IMHO) but EduCamps/Barcamps are different. There are no
reluctant participants; everyone who is there wants to be there. Twitter
once again proved itself the WD40 of social oils and made it
ridiculously easy to slip into conversations with strangers previously
Ultimately though, the day was about people*.
People sharing and discussing their thoughts, their successes, their
pitfalls and reflections. A group of likeminded educators all willing to
join with others to connect and collaborate. I wondered again what it
would be like to work in a learning environment surrounded by these
He aha te mea nui o te ao?

Next… EduCampBOP …see you there!
*and I got a choccy fish :-)
