Edcamp Leadership is a free unconference for school leaders devoted to K-12 education issues and ideas. Its goal is to assemble forward-thinking school administrators, board of education members, classroom teacher leaders, parents/community members – anyone interested in K-12 education – for a day of conversation, reflection and inspiration.
There are no keynotes. There is no preset agenda. Everything to be discussed that day is determined by the attendees themselves on the morning of the event.
If you’ve never been to an unconference, don’t worry. You’re virtually assured to leave at the end of the day renewed, invigorated and overflowing with ideas to bring back to your district.
How is that possible?
Most people say that the best part of “traditional” conferences is the conversation that occurs with fellow participants between sessions, or perhaps over lunch.
Now, imagine an entire CONFERENCE built around conversations – informal, small-group gatherings with honest, earnest discourse where the expertise is fully acknowledged to be IN THE ROOM – not just at the front of it.
THAT is an Edcamp. THAT is what makes the learning experience powerful. THAT is why you need to attend.
