It’s Magic! Edcamp Style Professional Development engages and empowers teachers.
Inspired by the unconference model of participant-driven sharing, Edcamp is a grass roots movement, a professional development model that has taken the country by storm. The model encourages educators to take control of their own professional learning. The educators create the schedule and share their expertise on a variety of topics. Everyone wins!
