EdCamp GCISD - June 10, 2014

Have you heard about EdCamp GCISD?  All GCISD teachers and staff are invited to attend this great day of self-selected learning!


What Is an EdCamp?

EdCamp GCISD is an “unconference”.  It’s free professional development for teachers by teachers. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, teachers are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions and questions. Teachers who attend EdCamp can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions.

How Will EdCamp GCISD Work?
Come enjoy a day with colleagues from GCISD. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning about topics that interest you. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.  During the first hour, you will have time to meet other teachers and share your ideas for session topics.  
Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend four sessions. The rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.
You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!


Who Is Invited?
All GCISD teachers and staff are invited to attend.

What Should I Bring?

Bring your  laptop and/or iPad so that you can  view the session board online, take notes and view websites discussed throughout the day.
