This year we had the wonderful opportunity to work with about 400 educators over the course of the weekend. This is about twice the attendance we had in our workshops last year if we remove the attendance of the Steampunk Scientific Exhibition for 2013.
Our keynote speaker was Brad Snyder with Need to Know Publishing. His insights really set the tone for the weekend and I look forward to hearing him speak for us again.
We explored the benefits of teaching fan fiction writing in our pastiche panel.
We discussed what to look for in good pop culture artifacts, the process for integration, and how to talk to non pop culture enthusiasts (NPCs) during our Effective Pop Culture Integration workshop.
