Event description

Description

The third annual edcamp for World Language Educators or EdCampWL will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2016 at JP Stevens High School located in Edison, 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 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.

Edcamps are the newest forms of professional development for teachers. They are a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers and their needs. What makes Edcamp an unconference? Unlike traditional conferences, which have schedules set months in advance by the people running the conference, Edcamp has an agenda that's created by the participants at the start of the event.

Last year, the edcampWL event was attended by over 150 world language educators from the Tri-state area!

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.

We hope to see you on Saturday, October 14th!
