Your presence is needed at EdCampLa 2012.
EdCamp is an Unconference offered by Teachers for Teachers. Teachers are the presenters. Teachers are the campers. Teachers determine the type of workshops. The needs of Teachers are the focus of this day of free workshops, talks and seminars.
EdCamp Louisiana Objectives:
Facilitate the sharing of knowledge and skills that are used to lead digital-age education
Provide an informal arena in which educators may build a network of like-minded colleagues with whom to brainstorm and learn

About EdCamp Louisiana:
This will be our second year hosting EdCamp Louisiana and we are excited to meet and greet other great educators from around the state. After last year's Unconference I asked for 6 word reflections about the time that we spent together and here is what some of our campers had to say.
Hope that you can come out to join us. See our website for more information http://www.edcampla.com/
