Bedford EdCamp 2018 A Learner's Odyssey

Education as a Journey

All children start their school careers with sparkling imaginations, fertile minds, and a willingness to take risks with what they think. – Ken Robinson

Knowing Our Students and Their Needs

What makes a child gifted and talented may not always be good grades in school, but a different way of looking at the world and learning. – Chuck Grassley

Student Engagement

I’m not going to school just for the academics. I wanted to share ideas, to be around people who are passionate about learning. – Emma Watson


Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. – Albert Einstein
And you and you and you
