EdCamp Loyola Part II: This Time, It's Personal

Photo and Name of EdCamp Loyola VolunteersThe School of Education’s Educational Technology program hosted the 2nd Annual EdCamp Loyola at Loyola University Maryland’s Columbia Graduate Center. EdCamp is a participant-driven professional learning opportunity, also known as an "unconference," where the participants drive the conversations and collaborate about various educational technology topics. David Dutrow, an alum of the Educational Technology program, volunteered at EdCamp Loyola, along with a group of volunteers made up of current students and alumni. He captured his thoughts and highlights of the day in his blog, Edcamp Loyola Part II: This Time, It’s Personal

The day was a success with many different breakout sessions for participants to choose from. Each being an open discussion where everyone could share their thoughts and ideas. They also had a Digital Playground and BreakoutEDU room. Congratulations to the group who broke out!
