What is EdcampSWO?
Edcamp is a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers and their needs. 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.
Edcamp sessions involve discussions around technology integration, pedagogy, assessment, evaluation and education in general.
This year we anticipate having converations about Coding, Minecraft, Office365, Google for Classrooms, Twitter, MakerSpaces, Vine, Green Screen, The Global Read Aloud, Explain Everything, iPads in the Classroom, Mystery Skype, Daily Physical Activity, Developing Technology Leaders and much more!
What are you curious about? What will you learn? What will you share? Who will you collaborate with? Join teachers, admin, ITprofessionals, parents and students as they all participate as learners.
Come and join the discussion on April 29!
