Kristin Swanson cofounder of the edcamp movement

wecm #38: @kristenswanson An Inside Look at What’s New with the #Edcamp Movement

Kristin Swanson, @kristenswanson Edcamp co-founder talks about edcamps, how to find one in your area, and how the #edcampgift movement in December is an awesome hashtag to follow.
If you work with professional development or are excited about being a connected educator, you'll want to hear Kristin's voice and know her because edCamps are becoming one of the most popular (and effective) ways for teachers to share best practices. Kristin is awesome.
 
I love how she talked about her work with MIT Media Labs and their new “Unhangout” technolgy that runs on top of Google Plus. (Look for quarterly unhangouts online hopefully.)
