What are the goals of edcampPDX?

  • Networking: Connect educators in the Portland / Oregon area

  • 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!

What is edcampPDX?

An edcamp is a unconference-style day of professional development organized and given by the local participants. Those who are interested pitch an idea for a conversation or hands-on session. The day of the edcamp we organize the ideas into sessions and everyone chooses which session to attend.

There is always something for everyone — and if not — sign up to lead a discussion that interests you! This is the best type of PD because its about what you want and shared with other passionate, innovative educators.

Bring a friend – or better yet – bring your IT director, Principal or Teacher Librarian. You can bring a laptop or tablet – wifi is available, as well as laptops to use at OES.

What does it cost? The day is FREE!!! Optional lunch cost: $5; register online & payable at the event. Sign up to attend
