Just a few more days until the big day!
We have close to 100 people registered and a number of different school divisions participating in this event. It is exciting that we will have the opportunity to collaborate with other educators who will share and learn alongside us.
Here are some additional details about the event. We are hoping to go paperless (as much as possible) so please bring a device of some sort (phone, tablet, laptop) to use during the event. Regina Public Schools will have passwords for wifi access. Bring a coffee mug to refill as there will be coffee and snacks available. Parking is located on the west side of the building.
During the event we encourage you to share using #edcampyqr on twitter, instagram and facebook. If you are considering sharing an idea, or would like to post something to the blog, please do submit it as we will post all links, documents, apps to the blog for you to peruse at your leisure.
A reminder that an edcamp is driven by participant need and knowledge. Please come with something in mind that you would like to learn about, something that you might be able to talk about or would consider sharing. There will be no formal schedule set until the morning of, based on participant interest and need.
Here is the schedule of events:
9:00-9:30 – Intro / explanation (During this time you will mingle, propose ideas, chat, suggest topics, perhaps offer to facilitate a session. There will be a general introduction to the concept of an EdCamp but no formal keynote speaker).
9:30 Session 1 (The sessions may appear to look more formal, or may just be a conversation. If you get caught up with a topic, feel free to stay and explore. If the session does not meet your needs, find one that does! Everyone has a voice.)
10:00 – 10:10 break (We have built in short breaks to allow for discussions to continue and of course, for snacks!).
10:10-10:40 Session 2 (Some sessions will run more than once based on participant interest. That may not be the case with all sessions).
10:40 – 10:50 break
10:50 – 11:20 Session 3
11:20 – 11:30 break
11:30 – 12:00 Session 4
12:00 wrap up
Please continue to follow along on the blog and through the twitter hashtag to keep updated on the events! We look forward to learning alongside you at #EdCampYQR. Thank you for joining us!
