What is edCamp Puget Sound?
edCamp Puget Sound is a biannual unconference for educators. We got our start in November of 2012 and have established ourselves as a model for regional collaboration for teachers by teachers.
What is an unconference?
An unconference is an informal, audience-organized forum for discussion, learning, and networking. The schedule is decided at the beginning of the day, and anyone can facilitate at a session. Participants are encouraged to exercise the “Law of Two Feet” and move around until they find a session at which they can learn and/or contribute the most. You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!
Who can attend?
Anyone! Most attendees will be K-12 or college educators from around the Puget Sound region.
What should I bring?
Nothing is required, but we suggest a laptop and/or smartphone for taking notes and backchannel communication (a secondary conversation on Twitter, Facebook, etc.) We are an informal bunch, so leave your presentation slides at home.
