Edcamp Chicago on April 27th will be held at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates! We are so thankful to the venue for offering the space for Edcamp Chicago! We are sure it is going to be a success and offer big thanks to the Sears Centre for hosting our unique event.
The Sears Centre Arena is an 11,800-seat multi-purpose family entertainment, cultural, and sports center. We will truly be putting the multi-purpose definition to the test when Edcamp Chicago takes over next weekend! The arena is home to theater shows, football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer and basketball games and concerts. They have a private club where we will convene to plan sessions and share learning at the end of Edcamp. Breakout sessions will take place in two large lounge spaces on the private concourse and in luxury suites on the same level.
Edcamp organizer, Patrick Mogge worked with Sears Centre staff to make sure plans were set for Edcamp Chicago. In School District U-46, Patrick is the Director of School and Community Relations. You can find Patrick on Twitter at @pmogge.
