Musings of a 21st Century Middle School Social Studies Teacher
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to Matt Miller of Ditch that Textbook and all those who contributed to the Summit this year! Ditch Summit 2017 was my first time participating in the event! So glad I did! I missed the first year. While I was initially hesitant about the timing in the second half of December, I found it to be the perfect timing for this event at the beginning of winter and the heart of Christmas Break away from school. This event brings together educators from around the country and WORLD to be empowered as educators and better our students in our classrooms. While I was not as involved as I wanted to be on Twitter throughout, there was a vibrant community of participants out there lighting up the #ditchsummit hashtag throughout the event! There was also the Flipgrid component, I wish I could have participated in more throughout Ditch Summit. Perhaps, next year I will be better!
I wanted to use this space to reflect on some of my biggest takeaways from Ditch Summit! There was so much! I couldn't possibly reflect on each session! Seriously... So many nuggets of wisdom and experience shared by lead educators!
