Last year it was great to have such a strong showing from so many Wisconsin educators and we hope some return this year, but many people also suggested EdCampChicago should be closer to Chicago.
While I was busy eyeing a nice junior college down town Leyden School District stepped up and practically begged to be the next host. Well they offered anyway, and what an offer it was.
First they offered as many classrooms as we wanted, we are hoping to more than double the number of participants to 250 educators. Then they offered Smart Boards in almost every classroom. What about WiFi? we asked. Of course, they responded.
Then we started asking for more.
Will you invite school board members? Yes.
We would love to see students get involved do you think they might want to do things like video tape, and provide concierge services? Yes, and we will do one better, we’ll ask our Cuisine Club about running a coffee and sandwich shop.
Hmmm, I wonder if they have an auto shop at this high school?
I am looking forward to February 2012, EdCampChicago 2012 is shaping up to be an awesome event.
EdCamp Chicago is being held at East Leyden High School (3400 Rose St, Franklin Park, IL 60131-2184) on Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 9:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. Come and join us for a day of great professional development!
