Not sure what to expect? Everyone who attends EdCampSD can propose a session topic/activity/presentation. Here are some session ideas from the @EdCampSD Twitter feed:

Maybe you'd like to join a jam session + music education discussion in the @tcslj Music Studio at #EdCampSD.

Session idea: "Public, Charter, Private: Can't we just all get along? How can we help each other?" #EdCampSD

Another food related session idea: "Let's talk about our noodles while making noodles." = brain discussion over pasta making. #EdCampSD

Session idea: "Putting the Parmigiano Reggiano in Reggio Emilia" Food can't hurt the conversation, can it? #EdCampSD

The @tcslj campus accomodates toddlers (babies even) thru adults during a regular day. Explore the place from another perspective. #EdCampSD

Would you like to go on a photo walk? Make something in the art studio? Build a robot? Take a stroll on the beach? #EdCampSD

How about some hands-on sessions, something active? We don't have to sit around and chat all day. #EdCampSD

What do you think about grades? No grades? Assessments? Testing? Standards? Common Core? NCLB? RttT? #EdCampSD

More interested in educational philosophy? Progressive? Traditional? Lectures? Homework? Recess? #EdCampSD

Is tech your niche? What do you want to discuss? Assistive technologies? BYOD? The cloud? Social media? iThings? … #EdCampSD

A session playing a game? Like Pandemic? http://www.amazon.com/Z-Man-Games-7021ZMG-Pandemic/dp/B0013OBXG2/ Not sure? Read this review by @anterobot http://www.theamericancrawl.com/?p=368 #EdCampSD #play

Session proposal by @tcslj 8th grader: "Personal Learning Projects: putting student interests at the center of their studies" #EdCampSD
