Meet Julia Hays, Journalist and Local Blogger

If you’d like to be featured in our Meet the Edcampers series, fill out this form!

Name: Julia Hays

How are you involved in education?
I’m a 2009 graduate of Rowan University and have been invited to schools to speak about my work in journalism and hyperlocal blogging.

What’s your ideal classroom or school like?
One where creativity is encouraged.

Have you ever attended an unconference before?
BarCamp Philly, TrendCamp, BarCamp Harrisburg, and, though it’s not officially an unconference but it still is awesome: Ignite Philly.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
I do not work in the education field, but I would like to present topics that would be relevant and beneficial to the educators in attendance. Here are some ideas:

1. Using Online Social Media Effectively in the Classroom.
2. How to lead a Twitter chat.
3. Class blogs done right.

Do you have a website or blog?

Are you on Twitter?
