Ed Camps are self-run professional learning experiences that are an un-conference model. Teachers arrive in the morning, put post-its up on the topics they want to discuss, and then vote on the topics and the teachers who will lead the conversation or training. It would be awesome to create this same experience for schools and communities by expanding the audience to include with teachers, parents, student leaders, community leaders, and administrators. I could imagine the topics moving from curriculum to questions as far ranging as how to interpret the report card to how to support our DACA students. The beauty of it is it is self-run and relevant to the questions and needs teachers are families are facing real time in the classroom and at home.
