I am so excited!! I have been waiting to hear about EdmodoCon. You maybe asking yourself "What is EdmodoCon?" Answer: The single best one day PD activity you can participate in during the summer. EdmodoCon is simply an entire day of short professional development sessions on a variety of topics on using technology in the classroom. It's sponsored by Edmodo and will be held on August 7th beginning at 10:00 am (Central Time). It's all online so you can literally participate in your PJs! I attended this online conference last summer while sitting out by my pool and I learned about some really wonderful instructional tools and those courses all had Edmodo groups as well so I've been able to participate in them throughout the year. Topics included using tablet computers in the classroom, digital citizenship, to how to use Edmodo. Most of the sessions from previous years are also available on YouTube. Don't hesitate! Gather some of your teaching buddies and have a fun filled day of technology PD. To register go to http://edmodocon.com/.
I'm a 7th grade Reading teacher and a technology lover. During the 2011-2012 school year we implemented a BYOD initiative. I hope that you will find some helpful information here.
