How it Works
The Annual Google EdCamp will kick-off with coffee, conversation, a blank session board, and an invitation for you to fill it with topics that interest you. You will be amazed at the wide variety of conversation-sparking sessions that begin to fill the board. Start thinking, because you will be able recommend and then select four the sessions that you want to attend. The rule of an unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session does not meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room! We hope that you will share some of your favorite web tools during our Chrome app Smackdown after lunch time, and when we're done with sessions, we will close out the day with some fantastic Swag!

We will have three strands for each of the four sessions-
  • Teacher strand
  • Technical management strand
  • Leadership and planning strand.



Session Ideas
One thing that makes an un-conference unique is that the people attending--the participants--facilitate sessions on teaching and learning. So the Google EdCamp won’t succeed without you. What type of session might you lead? This doesn't mean that you need a fancy presentation; in fact, sessions are often more beneficial when they are conversational, with someone starting the discussion and everyone else jumping in.Graphics may help to explain your ideas, but please, no bulleted lists!!

Here are a few ideas:

  • Share learning strategies with your fav chrome app
  • Organizational tools in Google docs you've found helpful
  • GAfE tips and tricks that can help you as a classroom teacher
  • Collaborate with others at your school to lead a session.

Even if you are not sure if you want to create/lead a session, we know that you will have plenty to share and contribute to the discussions!



What to Bring
  • A personal electronic device such as a laptop, tablet, or smart phone
  • A Notebook or app for note-taking
  • Boldness to ask questions and lead or share ideas when you know something!
