EdCamp KC -Join the Revolution
I’d like to introduce the next EdCamp SimpleK12 is sponsoring: EdCampKC! Dedicated to connecting with colleagues from the Midwest area and beyond, this is another exciting opportunity and great example of educators who are truly dedicated to working together and improving professional development for teachers by teachers.
Educators throughout the United States are traveling to EdCampKC, including states such as: Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas! Attendees are encouraged to arrive with an idea for a session they would like to lead or have discussed. Throughout the day, educators have the opportunity to attend up to four sessions. In a true UNconference fashion, if a session doesn’t meet your needs, you are able to leave and move on to a different discussion.
Teachers who attend edcamps are searching for alternatives to expand their learning, ways to connect, learn and share 24/7/365. SimpleK12 is able to meet these teachers’ needs by donating FREE passes to the EdTech UNconference.
Check out the details for EdCampKC below:
