FREE EdcampHOT for All Educators!
Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at Midway High School
We would like to invite you to the 2nd Annual EdcampHOT!
EdcampHOT: Teacher Driven, Teacher Led
An edcamp is a new form of professional development that allows educators to come together for a one-day, free conference. The unique thing about this gathering is that participants choose the content for the day, network and learn from each other, and walk away with inspiration and solutions to issues they face on a daily basis as they teach our students.
Edcamp is always FREE! Door prizes will be given away, too!!!

Padlet your Ideas!
Start thinking about what you would like to learn or possibly lead throughout the day and start adding your ideas on this Padlet:
This Padlet allows YOU to add ideas and topics that interest you. It will not determine which topics will be part of our day because those decisions will be made at the start of the day by all participants, but we're hoping it will get the "juices" flowing for you, so you'll be ready to add your sticky note to the wall.
