Why JEDcamp?
At Long Last: JEDCamp
Flying Fast, Flying Forward


Q: How much does JEDCamp cost?A: Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zilch. Chinam. We feed you all day long and you'll walk away with some free items (see sponsor list below)
Q: I'm not a techie - what will this conference do for me?A: JEDCamp is not an educational technology conference. More precisely, it is not necessarily an educational technology conference. Session topics will be suggested by the attendees on the day of the conference and you will have the freedom to choose whatever session strikes your fancy. And if you do not see anything right away that interests you - YOU can put a topic on the board.
Q: Does that mean that I need to prepare a presentation in advance?A: You don't need to. In fact, if you prepare in advance, you've probably over-prepared. JEDCamp sessions are meant to be organic, spontaneous and participatory. Some of the best sessions at JEDCamp might grow out of a group of people who want to have an open and serious conversation about a topic that has been on their minds. The opportunity to discuss with people from a wide range of schools and experiences can be a very enriching growth opportunity. (But if you'd like to jot down some notes for yourself, in case you end up facilitating a session - no problem!)
Q: But I have a Prezi (or website, rubric, doc...) that I think my colleagues would enjoy learning from. Should I share it?A: Absolutely! JEDCAmp is all about sharing resources, suggestions and ideas. Just keep in mind that you aren't pitching a formal presentation and if the participants want to take the conversation in another direction, that's cool.
Q: Isn't it kind of weird to go to a conference where you do not know in advance who you will be listening to?A: How often have you gone to a conference where you knew the name of the speaker in advance and felt that he could have made his point in 10 minutes and then let you go home? In JEDCamp, no featured speakers means that everyone is on the same level of expertise, and the learning is a result of a shared dialogue, not a frontal presentation.

HOW CAN YOU GET the most out of your JEDCamp experience?
JEDCampSFBay is a very informal type of conference, so informal in fact, that you might feel that there is little or no structure to it. Most educators are used to conferences that are very structured, very linear, very well, conference-like. JEDCampSFBay takes a completely different approach:
The structure of the JEDCampSFBay comes from the participants, so the success or the failure of JEDCampSFBay comes from how well the participants well...participate!
So, with that in mind, here are some simple tips that you should keep in mind when you come to JEDCampSFBay
  1. Come with questions: What do I want to learn? What do I need to know for my class? What can I take back? The questions you have lead to learning and to success.
  2. Come with technology. Bring your laptop, your iPad, your smartphone. You need something digital to interact with, because some of the things you will be doing atJEDCampSFBay probably will require you to get connected!
  3. Come with ideas about what you can share. What can YOU tell others about? Successes? Failures? Issues? You may think that you have nothing to share, but you do!
  4. Go to lunch with people you don't know! Use breaks and lunch to network with new friends!
  5. Come with the idea that you will meet new friends. There is a lot of networking built into JEDCampSFBay. Go to lunch with people you just met. Share emails, your Twitter name, your Facebook page!

JEDCampSFBay is like other participatory activities: If you just sit against the wall, you won't have any fun. If you get up and join, no matter what the activity is, you are sure to have a good time! JOIN IN! Have fun!
