Edcamps: The New Professional Development - Finding Common Ground - Education Week - 29 views

  • It typically takes a group of people to organize the event. They come up with a common theme of what they want the Edcamp to focus on and then they invite educators from around the school, district or state to attend and present. Attendees do not all have to present but some Edcamps encourage it.
  • Edcamps are about building an educational community and sharing best practices. Camps are known for bring diverse people together for a common good and Edcamps have the same goal in mind.
    "Imagine an unconference. No keynote speaker. No proposal deadlines 6 months before a conference takes place. In fact, take it a step further and think of a conference where there is no need to pay a fee. This type of unconference is called an Edcamp and it's a trending idea in education around the world."

    How do we find out more about EdCamps to be offered in our area? I am a NJ teacher. Sorry I missed the Philly opportunity?
    Hi Trish! Sorry we missed you. For more information about future edcamps, go here: - we will be back in 2012! There was a Teachmeet (similar style unconference) in March at Rutgers and probably will happen again next year too! You can always organize your own edcamp - if you want info on that, let me know! I'm Peace!
