If you’re a teacher in an independent school, and you’re already coming to Philly for NAIS, you owe it to yourself to stay an extra day and have the collegial experience of a lifetime. EdcampIS is happening the Saturday after NAIS at UPenn. Details are here.
If you’ve never attended an edcamp, it works like this: people show up in the morning and post topics they’d like to see in a session. As well, they post session topics they feel comfortable running. Then the organizers take all that information and make up the schedule. You’re free to attend whatever you like, and you can also help run a session. Attendance is guilt-free. Vote with your feet and nobody gets their feelings hurt.
As for the “real experts” tagline — who knows better what works than those who do it every day? Check back on the site to see who’s coming and what they might offer. And register yourself.
See you there! Oh, did I mention it’s free?
