Camp Create

Kelli Erwin

Why was Camp Create designed as a part of completing the IT Director certification program?I am currently working for Learning.com on strategic professional development. I design and facilitate unique teaching and learning opportunities for educators to explore the integration of technology into the core curriculum. Creating the Camp Create professional development event allowed me to provide a unique learning opportunity that can be shared with educators across Texas and the United States. The focus of Camp Create is on using a project-based teaching/learning approach to integrating technology applications into the core curriculum. The goal for Camp Create is to provide educators the experience of learning through technology integration in an effort to prepare them for successfully teaching using technology integration. The resources shared during a variety of the webinars helped to develop the training model and activities to be used during the Camp Create event. The need for quality and engaging professional development, that goes beyond the basics, became evident through conversations with IT Directors during the classes and through outside discussions. Camp Create has been designed to be engaging and inspiring.
