On September 22, 2018 #EdCampNSV was hosted at Johnson-Williams Middle School in Berryville, VA. Following up the event, I was able to sit down with four other educators at the event and reflect a bit on the things we experienced during the day. The four educators joining me for this discussion are Patrick Hausammann (Twitter), Lisa Scumpieru (Twitter), Phil Strunk (Twitter, Website, Edusations), and Derek Oldfield (Twitter). I hope you enjoy this conversation and reflection on this fantastic event with these great educators. Also mark your calendars for September 21, 2019 for the return of #EdCampNSV.

Upcoming Events and Announcements


Every Thursday at 9PM on Twitter – hosted by, friend of the show, Phil Strunk (@mrpstrunk). Phil works to get the questions posted ahead of time to help participants prepare for each session.


#WVEdChat will be back on October 16 with our topic, The “C” Word: #Change. I (Twitter) will be moderating that evening. There will be no session on October 30 to accommodate Halloween activities that will be taking place that evening. Then on November 13, Penny Rahill (Twitter) will be moderating and leading us through a chat about 3D Printing. Each of those sessions begin at 8 PM on those evenings and we look forward to having everyone join us to continue to expand their PLNs.
