We’re four short weeks away from EdcampRD and getting pretty excited! If you haven’t already registered, make sure you do. We only have 150 spaces available and they’re filling up fast.
Once you’ve registered, it’s time to start thinking of how you want to participate. There are a number of ways to get started:
- Host a conversation. The established Edcamp model is to pose a question or an area of interest and invite people to discuss it with you. As the host, you’ll lead the conversation, and invite others to join in. If you have an idea for a conversation go to our Padlet and share it (Click here)
- Give a half hour presentation. Do you have something special you’d like to share with everyone? Feel free to sign up for a presentation. If you’re joining us from abroad, feel free to present through a Skype chat or a Google Hangout.
- Hold an hour long interactive workshop. If you have a technique you’d like to share through hands on learning, this is the choice for you!
While at Edcamp you can join a conversation, watch a presentation or take part in a workshop. Your time is valuable and we want you to make the most of it, so Edcamp encourages you to “vote with your feet.” if you find yourself in the wrong conversation, just get up and go to another one that may interest you more. Voting with your feet is NOT considered rude, it’s simply a way to keep conversations dynamic. When all the people in a discussion want to take part, it makes for a better learning experience.
EdcampRD is open to teachers, coordinators, instructional coaches, and administrators. Since we’re all educators and life-long learners, we’ll leave our titles at the door and simply enjoy sharing ideas and learning from each other.
We look forward to sharing with you on Saturday May 7th!
