I am so excited to announce the second annual edcamp Philly! It is a day full of learning and making connections with teachers just like you!
When: Saturday, May 21st
Where: Jon Huntsman Hall, University of Pennsylvania
The day is completely unstructured until that morning, when the schedule of sessions is built by the attendees themselves. Sessions can range from discussions about assessment to sharing of Web 2.0 tools to interactive sessions. There is a lot of social networking and use of technology, but it is NOT a technology conference. Next to someone with an iPad you will also see someone taking notes on a legal pad. However, if you are looking to open up your classroom to more technology this is the place to go.
The best part of edcamp? The Rule of Two Feet. If you walk into a session and it's not what you expected or you are not impressed, you can simply choose a different session.
What's more, you can take tips, tricks and ideas back to your classroom on Monday and the whole day is FREE!
