I’m excited to announce that our first EdcampPPS will be on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 4-6:30 p.m. at George Middle School, 10000 N. Burr!
What is EdcampPPS?
An edcamp is an informal unconference-style day of professional development organized and given by the local participants with sessions determined at the time of the event. Connect with other educators to share innovative instructional strategies and technologies that transform education for all students.
Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead and be ready to learn. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators. You will have the opportunity to attend up to two sessions. The rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet.” If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.
What are the goals of EdcampPPS?
- Networking: Connect educators in the Portland Public Schools district.
- Instructional Practices: Learn new curriculum ideas, best practices and/or tech integration ideas from other educators.
- Personalized: Customize your own PD by suggesting, facilitating and attending sessions about topics that interest you!
What do I need to bring?
Bring a friend and your favorite device: laptop, tablet, smartphone with the appropriate power cables.
