Next Gen Pro Dev - Twitter Chats & EdCamps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are you ready to take your Professional Development to the next level? Do you
want to do something that's out of the ordinary and more enjoyable than just
"sit and get"? Do you want to be able to choose your own adventure when it comes to Professional Development?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this session is for you! We
will be discussing how you can use Twitter for more than just playing around by
taking advantage of some very helpful Twitter Chats. Come learn how to effectively participate in these chats by learning about different technology tools that can help this process along. We will cover a multitude of different tools that
will make following along as well as contributing a snap!

We'll also discuss EdCamps and why you should consider attending one as well as possibly starting one of your own. You'll see how EdCamps follow the "unconference" model and how you can actually come away from an EdCamp even more excited than after a full-on conference.

Come join us as we move into the Next Generation of Professional Development, a more personalized form of PD that's anything BUT the standard sit-and-get!
