Brief highlights from last year's Day of Learning

Here are some of our pictures from EdCamp Louisiana 2011

EdCamp Louisiana is an unconference.

What Does That Mean?

Come enjoy a day with colleagues from south Louisiana and beyond. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.

During the first hour, you will have time to meet other teachers over coffee. There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles.

Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend up to four sessions. The rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.

We will not be providing certificates for the professional development you receive. You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!

What is the Cost?

EdCamp Louisiana is free. Lunch will be on your own at a local eatery. We will provide a list of shops the day of the event.
