The Week in Review – Preparing for Camp

Good morning from Maine where I am spending the weekend putting together all of the finishing touches for next week’s Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp in Portland, Maine (one seat became available at the last minute). This is the third year in a row that I’ve organized this event and this year’s event should be the best one yet.
