Edcamp Vancouver Welcomes ALL Educators!

Dear Fellow Educators,

The first ever EdcampVancouver is coming soon and YOU are welcome to attend!

Quick Facts:

WHEN: Saturday April 16th, 2011, 9am – 4pm

WHERE: John Oliver Secondary School, 530 41st Ave E. Vancouver, BC V5W 1P3

WHO: Educators, Parents, Students, Media, Everyone!

So WHAT IS IT?

The purpose of Edcamp is to put a bunch of creative, innovative and dedicated people together to share ideas and improve teaching and educational practices. Workshops are conversation driven and not typical lecture style presentations. All participants are invited to contribute ideas in workshops, and any attendee who feels comfortable is encouraged to offer a workshop.

The Edcamp experience will be that of an un-conference. Wikipedia describes an un-conference as a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered on a theme or purpose. The term “unconference” has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as high fees and sponsored presentations.  Edcamp Vancouver is FREE.

A key component of the Edcamp Vancouver un-conference experience will be the use of technology to assist attendees in learning what is happening in each of the facilitated learning opportunities that is occurring. Each room will be equipped with an LCD projector, and other technology, for use by presenters if they choose.
