Word is going around about http://www.edcampharrisburg.org – in fact, I was talking about it at WORK and found out today that our director sent out an email to the local districts about it! It sounds amazing. Check it out!
Edcamp is an education conference “for the people by the people”.
So – you’re all invited to attend. It’s a Saturday, and it’s free.
It is a one-day educational conference, Saturday, November 12, Harrisburg University.
At the beginning of the day there is no schedule, but by the time sessions start, there are always interesting, engaging topics. This is not a recruitment for speakers. There will be plenty of people there to volunteer to present. At Edcamp Philly in April, these were some of the titles:
Teaching with Games
Targeting 21st Century Skills
How to use Web 2.0 in Elementary Schools
Model 1:1 computer classrooms
Librarians can help!
All About Google Apps for Education
Using Blogger in the Classroom
Social Networking in the Classroom
Should we embrace technology?
Creating authentic learning experiences using online global connections
What is an edcamp?
It’s an unconference. This means that the attendees are the ones who facilitate the sessions on teaching and learning! Edcamp won’t succeed without a whole bunch of you wanting to run a session of some kind!
Edcamp Harrisburg will begin at 8:00am with registration, breakfast refreshments, networking, and session-building with your colleagues. This is when you can sign up to lead a session, prepare for the day’s events, and meet some new friends. At 9:30, the organizers will kickoff the unconference and edcamp Harrisburg will get underway!
What should I bring?
Make sure to bring your ticket from EventBrite and also your laptop!
How do I register?
Visit our website www.edcampHarrisburg.org to register.
How much does it cost?
It’s free! Breakfast will be provided! Be one of the first to arrive and receive a free edcamp Harrisburg t-shirt.
