Calling all teachers, instructional technologists, IT Directors, Principals, Admins and Teacher Librarians who live in the NW. 

Join us at Lewis School on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for our fifth edcampPDX.

What are the goals of edcampPDX?

  • Networking: Connect educators in the Portland / Oregon area
  • Instructional Practices: Learn new curriculum ideas, best practices, and/or tech integration ideas from other educators
  • Personalized: You customize your own PD by suggesting, facilitating and attending sessions about topics that interest you!

What is edcampPDX?
An edcamp is a unconference-style day of professional development organized and given by the local participants. Those who are interested pitch an idea for a conversation or hands-on session. The day of the edcamp we organize the ideas into sessions and everyone chooses which session to attend.  There is always something for everyone — and if not — sign up to lead a discussion that interests you!  This is the best type of PD because its about what you want and shared with other passionate, innovative educators.

Bring a friend – or better yet – bring your IT director, Principal or Teacher Librarian.  You can bring a laptop or tablet – wifi is available.
