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.
