After the last session, we will continue to connect at a separate location in the neighborhood.
EdCamp IB is a free unconference dedicated to all four programs of the International Baccalaureate. Whether you teach the littlest learners in the PYP or older students in the MYP, DP, and CP, EdCamp IB is an opportunity to share the best of IB education with fellow teachers.
While EdCamp IB will focus on IB education, this event is open to all educators who would like to learn with us.
What makes Edcamp an unconference? Unlike traditional conferences, which have pre-set speakers and schedules, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions.
Built on principles of connected and participatory learning, Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions, and questions. Teachers who attend Edcamp can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions. Edcamps are:
- non-commercial and conducted with a vendor-free presence
- hosted by any organization interested in furthering the Edcamp mission
- made up of sessions that are determined on the day of the event
- events where anyone who attends can be a presenter
- reliant on the “law of two feet” that encourages participants to find a session that meets their needs
Don't miss this opportunity to share your insights and experiences with other educators in a collaborative and energetic environment. Share your best practices, participate, and further shape young minds of the future!
