What is an Edcamp?
An Edcamp is an 'Unconference."

An 'unconference' is an opportunity for professional educators to come together with colleagues and discuss anything that interests you relating to education. There is no schedule or agenda or keynote and no NO REGISTRATION FEE. An edcamp is designed, organized and developed by the participants attending that day.

Participants are encouraged to come with an idea for a session to lead or explore for a few hours of learning. Sessions that are proposed on the day of the Edcamp can pertain to anything in education. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best assessment practices or a collaborative presentaiton with multiple facilitators.

The first session of the day will comprise of all attendees sharing or listening to ideas for proposed sessions to be offered. Then, we will make a schedule and the learning can begin!

EdCamp sessions are NOT 'sit and get' presentations. 

EdCamps are about discussion and thinking and problem-solving. We build the agenda ourselves and then spend the rest of the morning talking, sharing, and learning. Come prepared to participate!
