Calling all teachers, instructional technologists, IT directors, principals, admins and teacher librarians who live in the NW. Join us at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory (map) on Thursday, August 18, 2011 from 8:30-3:30 pm for our first edcampPDX. Details and sign up here. It’s free and followed by an optional happy hour social – how Portland!
edcampPDX is free, democratic, participant-driven professional development. It’s an unconference built on collaboration and dialogue, not keynotes. I’ve been part of the steering committee for the upcoming edcampPDX. Here’s our goals:
- Networking: Connect educators in the Portland / Oregon area
- Instructional Practices: Learn new curriculum ideas, best practices, and/or tech integration ideas from other educators
- Personalized: You customize your own PD by suggesting, facilitating and attending sessions about topics that interest you!
