My Big Campus National Users' Conference

Today, Jason and I stepped off the Summer of eLearning Trail to join over 300 educators from 22 states gathered in Indianapolis for the National My Big Campus (MBC) Users' Conference. These passionate teachers, coaches, and administrators joined together for two days of learning the many ways My Big Campus can be used in their classrooms, schools, and districts.  

The morning opened with a lightning round of presenters from California, Michigan and Georgia sharing excellent MBC projects in their states. Indiana was also well represented by a number of presenters and projects. Pete Just and Michele Eaton from MSD Wayne shared about the creation of digital content through the MBC Bundles. Jennifer Watson from Madison Consolidated flipped a fifth grade using MBC, while Karen Diggs from North West Hendricks School Corp. not only flipped, but also used MBC for delivering a Drivers Ed course and Exam View assessments. Finally, Anita Hershman from North Judson assured us that you can teach old teachers new tricks with the ease of My Big Campus.

It was a truly special day for us, as Joel Heinrichs, CEO of Light Speed Systems parent company of My Big Campus, presented the Indiana Department of Education with the Innovation in Education Award. The award honors school districts and educational agencies that exemplify innovative educational practices. A big Hoosier Thank you to Light Speed and a even bigger CONGRATULATIONS to Indiana teachers and administrators for leading the nation in this exciting and challenging work of learning in today's digital age.

The two-day conference was jam-packed with learning, sharing, and true collaboration.  If you want to find out more, search and join the group, My Big Campus User Conference 2013 inside My Big Campus.
