Nerdcamp NNE Social Media Camp 2021

Sharing books, literacy practices, and inspiration!

We sure do miss being able to be together in beautiful Freeport, Maine to deepen and extend our learning side-by-side. However, the health and safety of our nerdy colleagues and communities is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore we have decided not to host Nerdcamp Northern New England in person this September. We also realize that many educators need a break from live video meetings and events. After much consideration, the committee has decided to host a 4-day social media NerdcampNNE event.

Let's help each other start the 2021-2022 school year off right!

From August 2-5 we will post a focus topic on the Nerdcamp NNE Facebook and Twitter pages. Colleagues can respond and share their thoughts, links, and photos by commenting on the post or in their own original post. We will be using the hashtag #Nerdcampnne2021.

All commenters will be entered to win a pre-selected picture book, lower middle grade or upper middle grade book stack (5 books). 3 winners will be drawn on Friday, August 6. Books will be mailed directly to the winners (US only).
