Event Description

EdCamp is “free, democratic, participant-driven professional development for teachers by teachers.” (via @dancallahan)  Unlike conventional conferences, EdCamp “unconferences”  are organized and driven by the attendees.  Participants arrive ready both to lead and learn from conversations.  Attendees create the agenda the morning of the event.  If a discussion goes in a direction that doesn’t meet your learning needs, you are expected to move to one that does.  No hurt feelings — this is self-directed, professional learning at its purest.  Each interaction offers the opportunity for educators to share, teach, learn, expand their personal learning network, and re-energize for the start of a new school year.
