CUE Rock Star La Jolla has been a blast! As I posted in previous posts, I was the Social Media director for this camp and had a ton of fun. Now I am getting ready to attend another conference, I wanted to reflect on what a great time I have had learning from so many amazing educators.
There is no place more beautiful for a Rock Star Camp than Muirland Middle School in La Jolla, California. Since I was the Social Media Director, I was able to take the time to enjoy the sessions, sights, and talk with awesome people. It gave me a chance to explore each session and really get to talk to the attendees. Did I also mention that the school is within walking distance to the ocean? The ocean people, this Las Vegas girl doesn't get to see a lot of that giant blob too often.
Each morning got started early and much to my delight included breakfast. Juli and I helped get all of the attendees checked in each day while the rest of the faculty got to hang out with the attendees and enjoy breakfast. One of the best parts of the mornings is that you weren't able to tell who was faculty and who was an attendee since everyone was talking, sharing, and laughing together which made the mornings so amazing.
As for the rest of the day, I decided to split the sessions and see four faculty members which was a fantastic way to get a sense of each session. The only downside was that I would have to leave halfway through a session and with our faculty, it was tough! Each day we enjoyed a great lunch and had lunchtime learning going on learning about Twitter, Google Classroom, and even some robots!
If you are interested in checking out what went down during the sessions, be sure to visit the La Jolla CUE Rock Star Page and visit my Storify to check out pictures, tweets, and more from those who presented and attended.
Until next time my Rock Stars,
Day two is all about STEAM! Presenters will take the day to talk about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics otherwise known as STEAM along with showing you ways you can use your favorite tools to incorporate STEAM into your own classroom.
Like the first day, each session will be repeated twice so that there is again, no FOMO ;) I forgot to add in yesterday that the day always starts with a Shred Session where presenters battle it out to get you excited about their sessions.
Shred Sessions start at 9:30 am- 10:00 am
Session One starts at 10:00 am- 12:00 pm
Session Two starts at 2:00 pm- 4:00 pm
Below is the eduawesome sessions that will be going on for day two and much like day one, you don't want to miss out on these amazing sessions! For a look at their presentation, click on the presentation link below and check out the "Session Web Page" button.
Woo hoo! Day two is going to be so exciting, I can't wait to see this train go full STEAM ahead. That ends the corny STEAM jokes for the day. Be sure to click on the presenter link to check them out and don't forget to chat with us during the conference!
