1. Location, location, location.
Valentine’s weekend? In the wine country? Amazing! Spend the day being inspired with learning and collaboration. Enjoy the local scene that is Petaluma in the evenings. It’s the perfect destination for fun and learning!

Petaluma. The home of Lagunitas Brewing Co.

2. Low cost, hands-on learning and a Pecha Kucha!
Petaluma is the ONLY Rockstar Camp this year with a Pecha Kucha Friday night! What's a Pecha Kucha?
As Jon Corippo defines it... 20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 minutes of awesome! Friday night will feature a fun and fast-paced way for attendees to meet all of the presenters in a slide deck showdown. You won't want to miss it! And we have an INCREDIBLE team!

Then, Saturday and Sunday consist of two, two-hour sessions allowing attendees to "dig in deep" and really get to know their topic, play, and build resources to use immediately.  Morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon so that attendees have two different opportunities to attend a workshop. All for $159! You can already check out the Saturday and Sunday sessions! Petaluma features Minecraft, Spheros, Google, STEAM, and more!

3. Small Presenter to Attendee Ratios
CUE Rock Star events are built so that there is one presenter for every ten attendees and the events sell out at 60-70 attendees.  This allows participants to get hands-on support and learn directly from knowledgeable educators. And, if you think administrators are out of touch, think again! Many of Petaluma's team of leaders are administrators, and all are true lead learners!

4. Time for Collaboration and Networking
We purposely start late, end early, and take extended lunches so that all attendees have tons of opportunities to collaborate and network as part of learning community. A continental breakfast and a delicious lunch are also provided each day! And ice cream!

5. It’s not your grandma’s PD
Professional learning for educators often consists of being “talked at” for hours on end with little or no interaction. At CUE Rockstar Petaluma, you’ll find no stand and deliver presentations. Be prepared for a brief instructional session and then plenty of time to work with support! You’ll be able to explore the tools and strategies you’re learning about and leave with something you’ve created! Also, everyone learns from each other at Rockstar. The smartest person in the room is the room!

So join us. It's going to be a beautiful weekend!
