The C4 Model of Learning is one of the largest projects I have ever undertaken in my career. The project started in 2009 as a way to redefine teacher professional development in Osseo schools, it has been a hugely successful online learning program that uses the coaching methodology instead of the traditional site and get. One of the largest accolades we received was in 2012 when we were recognized by the International Society for Technology in Education with the prestigious Seal of Alignment, becoming the first K-12 school to have ever received that recognition.
EdCampMSP (or EdCamp Minneapolis-St. Paul) is a day of participant-driven learning. There are no paid speakers, no proposal of sessions, just teachers who want to share about their passions.
I learned about the EdCamp movement when I received my ISTE Emerging Leader award in 2010. I brought the first EdCamp to Minneapolis-St. Paul in June 2012 and have hosted over 500 teachers at 3 additional events.
I also worked to bring the event to Bemidji to support teachers in northern Minnesota.
