The first EdcampDC will galvanize educators in our nation's capital region.
Edcamps are self-organized "unconferences" that bring forward-thinking educators together to network, share ideas, and teach one another. It's not just a day of professional development. It's a movement. And it's planned for Saturday, January 21, 2012.
Rather than sit and passively receive information from an "expert" presenter, Edcamp attendees are the presenters.
Attendees bring their troves of knowledge and experience to create an agenda the day of the conference. They network, forge friendships, and teach one another in socratic sessions. And they obey the "law of two feet": move to the session most useful to you.
What Does It Mean to Register?
Signing up to attend EdcampDC means that you're committed to sharing ideas, asking questions, and forging new connections with other educators in the DC Region.
Anyone attending can choose to present. Registering does not mean that you have to present, but all attendees interested in presenting must register. Learn more here.
Lunch will be provided for all attendees.
