There are two hashtags that you may wish to follow today. In the province, there are two edCamp events happening today.
If they were only closer…
Instead, I’ll just add a couple of extra columns to Hootsuite to follow along.
Located at the Design Cofounders location on Spadina Street in Toronto, look for a full day of learning for this event, rescheduled from earlier this fall. If you’re not at the event, you can follow the discussion at: #edcamptoronto. If you are at the event, make sure that you’re sharing with the world using that hashtag. It looks to be a successful and large event. As I write this, I checked and there are only 14 seats remaining. Rumour has it that there will be a taco bar there.
This offering is a little different. In its first kick at it, the York Catholic DSB is offering an edCamp to teachers within that district. They’re involved in a half-day professional learning event and will be using their district’s 21st Century learning hashtag ycdsb21c to spread the news and share the learning.
The event is organized by a team:
8:45 – 9:15 Gathering, Student Keynotes, Session topics organized
9:25 – 10:05 Session 1
10:15 – 10:55 Session 2
11:10 – 11:50 Session 3
11:55 – 12:05 Closing Remarks, Prizes
**Enjoy breakfast, networking, & conversation between sessions
These look like two terrific events offered to two different communities, have different organizational strategies, but remain true to the edCamp model of participant interest driven professional learning. A common thread to both, beyond the learning, is door prizes! How can you lose?
All the best to both events and make sure that you’re sharing lots!
