EdCamps are a powerful, innovative professional development specifically designed around what teachers want to learn. Unlike traditional conferences, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. People are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. Because attendance is voluntary, there is a great deal of commitment, enthusiasm and excitement among EdCamp participants. Since there is no established hierarchy between presenters and attendees this allows for a greater exchange of ideas and empowers educators to take control of their own professional development and grow their personal learning network.
