Photo Diary: Nerd Camp MI 2017
For two days in July, the small town of Parma, Michigan becomes the center of the literacy universe.
I’m off to Nerd Camp and will be sharing photos here throughout the conference. Check back and I’ll be adding to this post as the day goes along.
What is Nerd Camp? Short versh: an “un-conference” focused on literacy. Long versh: I wrote all about it for School Library Journal.
