#EdcampHOME is Where the Heart is. for Learning

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

I remember attending my first Edcamp in November and being awed by the session board: its masking taped grid on a cement block school wall and the giant post it notes used for session creation; the organizers on laptops furiously copying the schedule to a Google spreadsheet.

2 Unconferences in 2 Days: EdCamp Honolulu and EdCampOnline -- Part 1 of 2

I hadn''t ever been to an EdCamp before, so to attend two in two days was quite amazing. One event was in person, the other was online (a first not only for me, but for edcamps!). So this is Part I: mainly about the resources I gathered at EdCamp Honolulu , October 19, 2013.

Using EDCAMP for Professional Development for All Teachers

Saving Socrates

I attended my first EdCamp, called JEDCampNYNJ and on a Sunday last spring. At EdCamps, this is a given. So what makes a conference a JEDCamp rather than an EDCamp? A JEDCamp is just a Sunday or non Saturday EdCamp for any educators who teach or work or are involved in a significant way (send your kids, are on a board, interested in Jewish Education, etc) in Jewish Day Schools.

What Constitutes Good PD?

A Principal's Reflections

We can all agree that professional development is essential in any profession, especially education. It is an opportunity to become better at what we do as well as gain knowledge on new pedagogical techniques, learning theories, leadership strategies, technologies, and federal/state mandates.

#NYSCATE13 - A Conference that Knows How to Make IT Happen!

The Innovative Educator

Some nail it like EdCamps and EduCon , and others leave something to be desired. I've attended a lot of conferences. When it comes to throwing a worthwhile conference, NYSCATE is one that knows how to make it happen. I had the privilege to meet and canoodle with innovative educators at this year’s NYSCATE in Rochester and here are a few of my favorite things about what this conference did right.

What EdCamps Are All About

Comfortably 2.0

I could go on and on about the benefits of attending an Edcamp and how amazing it is to sit in sessions with like minded educators discussing their passions, but I won''t.

Another great day of collaboration, conversations and sharing.
