What is an edcamp?


Free Professional Development
for Teachers by Teachers

EdCamp Chicago is an unconference.

What Does That Mean?

Come enjoy a day with colleagues from the Chicago area and beyond. Arrive with an idea
for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A
session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative
presentation with multiple facilitators.

During the first hour, you will have time to meet other teachers over breakfast and coffee. There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles.

Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend up to five sessions. The
rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs,
simply get up and move on to another room.

We will not be providing certificates for the professional development you receive. You
will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can
immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!

EdCamp Chicago is free.

What Should I Bring?

Bring a friend. A laptop with wireless Internet is useful. It will allow you to view the session
board online, take notes, and view websites discussed throughout the day.
