This passage is taken from an article by Hadley Ferguson on the Edcamp.org site.
"Edcamps became so powerful because they recognize and honor the expertise of teachers. Each Edcamp is organized by educators, for educators. They aren’t professional development based on what someone else says that you need to learn or know and are truly participant-driven. The sessions continue to be developed on the day of the event, based on the interests and questions of the people who give up their time to learn from and with other educators. There are no outside experts; the teachers who show up, working together, are the experts."

Mrs. Kelli Duke found an interesting article that we all need to consider as we move into the next phase of technology integration concerning keyboarding at our primary and elementary campuses. Take a look at "Technology in the Classroom: Make Keyboarding Fun".
