ASCD Annual Conference 2013

Some of our team was at ASCD's annual conference in Chicago this year. Here are just some of the things we loved about it.


  1. Before the first general session started the winners of the ASCD’s 2013 Outstanding Young Educator Award (OYEA) were announced. Joshua Garcia, deputy superintendent of Tacoma Public Schools in Tacoma, Wash., and Ryan Twentey, a photography teacher at Parkville High School in Parkville, Md.
  2. Freeman A. Hrabowski III, President, University of Maryland, Baltimore County kicked off the first general session with his keynote: "Education for the 21st Century: Creating a Climate of Success for All Students"
  3. During the conference, a couple of edcampers decided to host the first ever #EdcampRogue. 50+ educators came and many walked away with answers to their questions about digital tools, social media, and more.
  4. And here are just some tweets we liked:
