Nov. 13 Mini Edcamp - A Flurry of Ideas and Resources

Do you have a neat resource, idea, strategy, etc you’d like to share with others? Come share it at our mini edcamp! An EdCamp is an “unconference” designed specifically for teachers and their needs. What makes Edcamp an unconference? Edcamp has an agenda that's created by the participants at the start of the event. You can share or just come and gather ideas!

During the edcamp, each person that would like to share will have only 1 or 2 minutes to show the resource and how to implement it in the classroom. The idea is to gather as many ideas as possible, then take and use what you like best. After the sharing, you can “get and go” (get the info and leave) or “stay and play” (stay after to discuss more and network).
