THANK YOU FOR MAKING EDCAMPPENN A HUGE SUCCESS!
About our Edcamp
EdCampPenn is uniquely created for Humanities teachers with interests in incorporating technology, student choice, and student voice into their classrooms. We are inviting K-12 educators in the content areas of social studies, English language arts, world languages, and technology from the tri-state area and beyond. Consider leading a session about a strategy or tech tool that you've used to great success. We hope you will join us for this opportunity to network and collaborate with other educators.
What is Edcamp?
from EdCamp Online:
Edcamp is a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers and their needs.
What makes Edcamp an unconference?
Unlike traditional conferences which have schedules set months in advance by the people running the conference, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. Sponsors don’t have their own special sessions or tables, all of the space and time are reserved for the things the people there want to talk about. People could pay hundreds of dollars to attend another conference, or they could go to Edcamp for free.
Built on principles of connected and participatory learning, Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions, and questions. Teachers who attend Edcamp can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions.
Over 700 Edcamp events have been held to date around the world.
