Breathitt County Teachers Lead Virtual EdCamp


On Tuesday, May 12, educators from the Breathitt County School district gathered virtually to learn about topics ranging from Google Apps for Education to Integrating Reading and Writing into Content Areas to Social/Emotional Strategies for Teachers & Staff.  Educators were able to select four topics from the range of offerings to attend live throughout the day, and each session was recorded so that teachers would have the opportunity to watch any others on-demand.  At the conclusion of the virtual EdCamp, all attendees completed a survey  to provide feedback about their learning experience. 

The Curriculum team would like to recognize and thank all of the presenters (pictured below) who shared their expertise during our first virtual EdCamp.
