Free Professional Development for Teachers by Teachers

EdCamp Seacoast is an unconference.

What Does That Mean?

Come enjoy a day with colleagues from the tri-state area and beyond. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.

During the first hour, you will have time to meet other teachers over coffee. There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles.


Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend up to four sessions. Edcamps empower attendees with the rule to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.

We will be providing a certificate of attendance for the professional development you receive. You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!

What is the Cost?

EdCamp Seacoast is free. Breakfast & Lunch will be provided by local sponsors.

Can I get credit?

There is a good chance you can! Teacher training credit varies by state and district, meaning participants must be their own advocates in receiving credit.

Over 80% of adminstrators who were exposed to the Edcamp model, not only approved it for teacher training credit, but adapted the model for their districts.

You will receive a PD cert with the name the email you used to sign up through EventBrite. If you discover you need something more official from the Edcamp Foundation, please email us to help you get approval from your administration.

What Should I Bring?

Bring a friend. A laptop, tablet or device with wireless Internet is useful. It will allow you to view the session board online, take notes, and view websites discussed throughout the day. We are also collecting donations for End 68 Hours of Hunger. (click to find a list of items)
