Edcamp Sponsors Part II and Meet Andrea Erickson

Yesterday we shared Part I of Edcamp Chicago sponsors this time around. Today we are sharing Part II of Edcamp Chicago sponsors, specifically highlighting local business that are supporting us. We already mentioned that the Sears Centre offered the venue for our event and that Pinstripes is hosting our after-party and giving us half-price appetizers. SportClips, Trader Joe's and CDM Promotions have all supported us as well. Finally, this Edcamp would not be possible without the support of School District U-46 and leaders like Andrea Erickson and Marc Hans.

When we asked Andrea about her favorite platform, she said Twitter. We also asked Andrea if she had a preference for iOS or Android, PC or Mac...and she said, "If you can believe it, all. I have PC at work and Mac at home. I have an iPad and an Android phone."

Before we go, we also asked Andrea what Starbucks drink would she be if she was a Starbucks drink and she responded, "Black Venti - strong, smooth and simple, yet complex." 

Marc Hans is also supporting Edcamp. He currently works as the Coordinator of Math, Science, Instructional Technology, and Planetarium in School District U-46.
