VirtualSC and the Virtual School Leadership Alliance (VSLA) are excited to present the first VSLA online Edcamp on Wednesday, July 27, 2016. The goal of the Edcamp is to help educators gain more understanding and share information on Online and Blended Learning.
Edcamp is a 1-day “unconference.” It is a chance for educators (teachers, administrators, etc) to get together, network, share and learn. The day is planned during the kick off at the beginning of the day where any participant can propose a session idea/topic.
What is an Edcamp?
An Edcamp is an organic, participant-driven professional learning experience that involves a community created by educators, for educators. Edcamps are the leading edge in professional development. The Edamp starts out as a blank slate that becomes decorated as participants propose session topics on the spot. For that reason, Edcamp is an unconference. The substance of an Edcamp is created when participants decide, on the day of event, what discussions need to occur. It may seem like a daunting task for the first go-round, but once the first topics are shared, the idea of on-the-spot professional conversations catches on quickly.
The Virtual School Leadership Alliance is an association of the chiefs of virtual schools that provides collegial support and collaborative opportunities to the individual members and member organizations to share resources, services, and expertise. You’re invited to join us for Virtual Edcamp.
