After a very successful edcamp for World Languages last fall, with over 175 educators in attendance, we are excited to hold our second annual edcamp on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at Piscataway High School located in Piscataway Township, New Jersey. Edcamp for World Languages is a part of the global edcamp "un-conference" movement which brings local educators together to pitch ideas to their colleagues and to participate in customized workshops. The free event will focus on offering innovative pedagogical discussions to K-12 world language teachers from across the tri-state area.
The national Edcamp Foundation describes the goal of an edcamp as "promoting organic, participant-driven professional development" (http://edcamp.org). Rather than a planned speaker or an outside consultant, edcamps draw on the strengths of the participants.
#EdcampWL 2016 will take place on Saturday, October 8th at Piscataway High School in Piscataway Township, New Jersey from 8:00AM to 12:30PM. The conference will be offered free to educators thanks to the generous sponsorship of Piscataway Township Schools and other sponsors and vendors.
The edcamp event is being organized by a group of volunteer educators from across the tri-state area. The group includes teachers, administrators, and language coordinators from a variety of school districts in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Be part of a global movement! Sign up to attend #EdcampWL 2016 before tickets sell out!
