What is a NerdCamp?
A nErDCAMP is a free literacy event. Teachers, librarians, authors and illustrators of children’s books get together to discuss reading, writing, and books! EdCamps, the original “unconference”, sparked this new form of professional development.
In an Edcamp, educators get together to create their conference. No presentations are scheduled in advance; instead, the conference is built on the day of the event as people arrive and fill the board with sessions they want to lead.
A nErDcamp puts a literacy spin on the Edcamp model and includes some scheduled sessions and some sessions organized in a traditional Edcamp model where participants are encouraged to volunteer to lead sessions.
