Edcamp Admin Adds Student Advisor As A Sponsor



We are excited to announce the addition of Student Advisor as a sponsor for Edcamp Admin which will take place at BHS this Saturday from 8 a.m. until 12.

StudentAdvisor.com, a Washington Post Company, is the free, leading “all things education” comparison resource for students, parents and lifetime learners. StudentAdvisor.com empowers college students of all ages to choose which college is the best fit for their individual short and long-term career path, academics, financial situation and budget, and personality.  StudentAdvisor.com is the home of the Top 100 Social Media Colleges© and in April gave away $24,000 Scholarships in 24 hours. StudentAdvisor.com publishes the most comprehensive college-centric guides for students and parents (ranging in topics from Navigating Admissions, to Filling out the FAFSA to the Parents Survival Guide)  and enables parents and students to connect to college advisors online.

Check out the video below of  Student Advisor's Editor in Chief Dean Tsouvalas as he discusses with Fox New Boston how students can use social media tools to enhance their chances to gain acceptance to the college of their choice. 


We look forward to Dean's attendance at Edcamp Admin on Saturday!

  1. I attended the iPad distribution/information session this morning. When I asked if teachers will be expected to assign homework online (website, tweet, blog, some other iPad accessible source) the answer was "no". Can you explain why there is no requirement now that every student has online access and you are trying to go paperless? Thanks.

  2. Kevin,

    That's a great question. We will be supporting teachers as they make choices regarding the best options for them to make information, homework, etc available to students and parents. It is my belief that most will be taking advantage of this opportunity. At this point, we are encouraging this and feel that widespread acceptance will follow. We are optimistic that we will not need to "require" our fine teaching staff to utilize these resources.
