What is Edcamp?
Edcamp is an un-conference style event that is teacher-driven and teacher-led. One of the unique things about Edcamps are that sessions are not pre-determined, instead the schedule is “built” first thing in the morning by participants who either volunteer to share about a topic or who throw out a topic they would like to learn more about in hope that someone in the group will step up to facilitate a session. A huge tenant of Edcamp is “Vote with your feet” – in other words, if a session doesn’t meet your needs, then get up and move to another session!
