Edcamp Reflection

I just experienced my first Edcamp session. It was a super interesting and helped me engage with my peers. After the four groups were chosen, I decided to join the group discussing special education. I found it to be very informative and helped further my knowledge into the subject. My group of discussed a variety of topics which also included each individual learner and their specific needs in and out of the classroom. This is a topic I have many questions about for a handful of reasons. What designates each individual student? Why is there still such a stigma around having a different need within the classroom? These two questions weren’t solved in the Edcamp, but it is something I look forward to diving into in the future, potentially with my tech inquiry project! Overall, this was a positive experience, and I am already thinking of how I can incorporate the Edcamp style of learning into my teaching, and learning in the future.
