The Phenomenon
   Grew from the BarCamp
philosophy, like-minded people
 getting together to share and
              grow.
EdCamp is a collaboration
            among educators who
          passionately believe in the
EdCamps      power of educational
           technology to transform
            teaching and learning.
              We are devoted to
          advancing best practices in
                K-12 education
               and professional
                 development
Born from Bar Camp Set-up
I have attended two and I have
      enjoyed them both
To be
            professionally
          developed, who is
Concept    the best judge of
           what is needed?

            broaden exposure.
Website, Blog or Wiki !?!
               Your site should include as much

              3. Sponsors page – if you have
  choice      sponsors who have donated
              money or products, you need
              space dedicated to promote their
