I’m very excited to be on the EdCamp Hamilton Planning Committee. On Saturday, May 4th, a group of educators, parents, administrators, and students will be meeting to discuss topics in education that are important to them. This professional development is being driven by the people there. It’s an opportunity for collaboration amongst all stakeholders in education, and I love this!
In the past couple of years, I’ve attended and presented at numerous conferences, and while I always enjoy the sessions that I go to, what I often enjoy the most is the conversations I have outside of these sessions. It’s these informal conversations that often bring about the most change. EdCamp allows for a full day of these informal conversations.
So I hope that all of you reading this post will consider attending EdCamp Hamilton on May 4th. Let’s share ideas and learn together! This will be my first EdCamp, and I can’t wait to go.
Why do you think others should attend an EdCamp? What advice do you have for first-time EdCamp participants? Why are you attending? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
