Summer EDcamp 2017

So what is it? A participant-driven conference-styled PD event with multiple sessions and presentations on Wednesday, August 23 @ Ramapo HS. You attend the workshops that most interest you! Day will include a starter breakfast in the faculty room at 8am, lunch on your own, and giveaways! Earn up to 6 PDC hours! There will be sign-in sheets during each session.

What’s the theme? Our theme for this District EDcamp will be “Ditch That Worksheet: Creative and Innovative Teaching”. We will be highlighting creative approaches to the classroom as well as new and innovative things you are trying, seamless tech use and great apps/programs of choice, and ways you “ditch that worksheet” for more hands-on experiential learning.

Here is the schedule breakdown for the day:

8-8:25 Sign-in, starter breakfast and colleague meetup in faculty room

8:30-9:20 Session 1

9:30-10:20 Session 2
