It's an exciting day to connect and learn about what YOU want to learn
EdCamps are very low cost events, with some financial support obtained through educational organizations, online communities, and local businesses.
1. With no pre-set schedule or presentations, sessions are determined through a collaborative process on the day of the event
2. Learning takes place through conversations and person-to-person interactions and activities, not listening to formal presentations.
Because the program is set that day, sessions can respond to the most relevant local interests and needs expressed by those who attend.
EdCamps are based on the belief that all those attending have valuable expertise and experiences to contribute.
When learners with different backgrounds and perspectives come together, it can result in exciting innovations and collaborative communities of practice, and deeper dialogue about the issues.
Discussions and activities which begin at an EdCamp can continue long after the day is over: in a connected world, common educational interests and needs are a natural springboard for lasting connections and continued sharing.
Participants set the sessions and are encouraged to to take responsibility for their learning and follow the Law of Two Feet:
"If a session isn't the conversation or activity you want or need, it's important that you get up and find a session that is."
