#EdCampYQR - An "unconference" for teachers, by teachers

Professional Development Opportunity - August 2013 - EdTech and more!

EdCampYQR - Regina Public Schools is proud to present Regina's first EdCamp.  On Thursday, August 29th, from 8:30 - 12, teachers and staff from pre K-12, are invited to join other colleagues in the division at Campus Regina Public (formerly Cochrane High School).  An "edcamp" is a professional development opportunity unlike any other; it's an "unconference" where the sessions are decided the day of the event, driven by participant interest and need.  Anyone can present and anyone can lead a discussion.  Although the focus may be educational technology, it may evolve into discussions about everything and anything related to teaching practice.  

But what is an EdCamp, you may ask?  Check out this xtranormal video to learn more!

You are invited to follow along (and pre-register) on the blog at http://edcampyqr.wordpress.com, and to follow all updates on twitter @EdCampYQR.

In addition, we would request that you fill out this brief survey so that we can better identify your needs / desires as participants. 

We are very excited about this unique opportunity for teachers and staff alike.  All are welcome and we look forward to this professional development driven by teachers, for teachers.
