First EdCamp Seattle Scheduled for November 17, 2012!

Educators are lifelong learners who continually look for ways to improve their craft. National and regional conferences can be good sources for new information but can be expensive and time consuming.

Enter EdCamp, a group of “unconferences” held across the country throughout the year, putting educators in control of their own learning. EdCamps have been held for three years, and the first Seattle EdCamp will be on November 17, 2012.

In an unconference, attendees brainstorm their interests and needs to make a giant Post-It note schedule of the day’s sessions. Speakers may have a presentation prepared, or volunteers facilitate the conversations so learning happens organically.

Seattle’s EdCamp is free to all attendees, but organizers ask that teachers add their name to a Google Form on the EdCamp website. Educators at all levels are welcome to join the conversations at EdCamp Seattle, held on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.
