Playdate PDX 2013 #playdate13
Saturday, Feb. 9
9:30 am-12:30 pm
Holy Cross School
5202 N. Bowdoin St., Portland, OR 97203
This is a new kind of conference. Think about the last time you attended an EdTech PD, conference or other professional learning event. Oftentimes, we leave full of new knowledge and a list overflowing with new apps, programs and skills to try out. However, once we return to “the real world” many of us lack the time and support to actually try out all of these new tools.
PLAYDATE13 is a space for us to come together and collaboratively explore these tools we’ve always wanted to learn more about. The concept is to invite educators from around the area to join together on one day, sit in a room for a few hours and just play. They will collaborate to learn about EdTech apps, programs and tools with one another. There are no presenters in the room, no experts and no agenda. Simply time to play, tinker, and explore.
There will be a Google Doc circulated a month before the event for colleagues and fellow educators to fill in with tips, tricks and links to help support the exploration during the PLAYDATE sessions, but that’s it! Join us on Saturday, February 9th to rediscover playtime.
