Edcamp comes to CT - twice this year! Join in, share, learn.


Edcamps are the "unconference". They are free, attendee led and driven, places to share and learn. Edcamp is a great series of free, unconferences for educators. It is a great method of professional development, being run by teachers, for teachers. The Edcamp model is unique in that attendees set the agenda the morning of the conference and the sessions are not led by one person, but are rather a collaboration of both the facilitator and attendees.

This is a great opportunity to connect, share, teach, learn, and expand their personal learning network. It is schedule right before school starts, so it is a great way to get back into the "swing of things" and get some great ideas and resources for the coming school year.

Here is a great article by Mary Beth Hertz on Edcamp and the unconference idea.

I've been to a few Edcamps, including EdCampCT, and always enjoyed them, learned a lot, and made some great connections.

Here is a calendar of all EdCamps scheduled so far.
