edcamp PDX

edcamp PDX

A few Portland area educators one evening were discussing on Twitter that we should get together face-to-face and meet each other and share ideas .. and bring a friend. Next thing you know we start brainstorming ideas for an unconference workshop day. What is an unconference? An unconference is a day where teachers / admins/ tech coordinators / Principals / IT folks self-organize their own day of professional development.

edcampPDX was born out of that discussion. Our first annual edcampPDX will be held at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory on Thursday, August 18th from 8:30-3pm. Information can be found at: http://edcamppdx.wikispaces.com/

The edcamp format expects everyone to come ready to learn and share. Sessions are suggested by participants and lead by participants. Its good old fashion do-it-yourself professional development. You learn what you want to learn.

I’m hoping some folks will lead discussions about:

  • Project based learning
  • Moodle 2.0
  • WWG (wonderful world of Google)
  • Collaborating with fellow teachers
  • Bring you own devices
  • Web 2.0 smackdown

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!  http://edcamppdx.wikispaces.com/
