Concerns about lack of structure
Lack of experts in sessions
It was evident that this was our first EdCamp, some teachers didn’t understand the format
Many districts did a Smackdown after back at their districts
Looking at putting together notes for next year
Jon Voss and Dan McGuire were in attendance to present on MPCC
The content is meant to be a core that meets the standards.
Concerns that were brought forward included:
