Recharge Your Learning: Suggestions for Attending, Setting Up, and Running an Edcamp
Have you sat through mandated training that had little to do with what you needed - and wished that you could set the agenda? Or have you worked with technologies and ideas that you'd like to share with others? Do some of your colleagues feel the same? Consider holding, participating in, or attending Edcamps, which are local, participant-driven events focusing on free teacher professional development. Join Jerry Swiatek, founder of Edcamp Citrus, as he explains what Edcamps are (and are not) and why they can be so beneficial. In addition to discussing some of his Edcamp experiences, Jerry will explain what resources you need to host your own Edcamp, as well as provide suggestions, tips, and advice for helping an Edcamp run smoothly.
