The ECU College of Education hosts edCamp ECU each Spring at the ECU College of Education! The 2018 edCamp will be Saturday, April 14th from 8:30am-1:00pm.
What is an edcamp? Edcamp is an “unconference” designed to provide free participant-driven professional development for P-12 educators with a focus on educational technology. Edcamp participants have the opportunity to share practical examples in instructional use of modern tools and collaborate to find solutions to the problems technology can introduce into the classroom environment. Participants will be eligible for CEU’s for participating in edcamp ECU.
At an edcamp, participants are the ones who who facilitate sessions on teaching and learning! Please think about a session you might want to lead either individually or with a colleague. During the registration, you can submit a topic you would like to discuss and you can also volunteer to facilitate a discussion the day of the conference. The agenda will be a live document that we will create the day of the conference!
What kinds of sessions might you run?
- Discussions on issues in education technology
- Share a model lesson or unit that integrates technology
- Conduct an inquiry session into a new tool
- Share something you’re passionate about
- Share a new tool and discuss the possible applications in the classroom
- Discuss new things you’d like to learn more about
- Share activities you’re looking to improve
- Anything else you can think of that will get other interested teachers to come and share with you!
Even if you don’t feel like facilitating a session, please come ready to share ideas, ask questions or pose problems of practice.
