But don't take our word... read what others said:

  • JEDCamp is a hard thing to describe - until you actually participate in one. Then it is crystal clear. It's important to trust the process - and feel confident that if educators you respect are participating in the day - that it's bound to be something really good. Trying something new is important - trying something that you don't quite understand what it is - - is something we often want our students to do.
  • JEDCamp is a fantastic opportunity to share ideas, explore new methods, and learn best practices from fellow educators.
  • Learning what you want to know about from people who know about it.
  • Alchemy. Magic. Learning. That's what happens when you combine passionate educators, dedicated administrators, and engaged lay leaders in a day of peer-to-peer engagement on the most pressing topics of the day. There's no method but the madness - and it worked.
  • It is impressive and exciting to see such a range of educators coming together to think creatively and share best practices.
  • As always, the networking was one of the most valuable parts of the activities. Hearing what other talented people are doing to help kids learn is the best!
  • This is worth your time and energy. I came on a "day off." You meet other educators and the spontaneous conversations are thought provoking. I came away energized and creative.
  • If you feel isolated and unsure of the educational changes occurring, you must attend a JEDCamp. You will meet and collaborate with colleagues that have a variety of expertise and have an opportunity to share yours. Teachers are the largest, most educated group in most communities; JEDCamp is a way to share that pool of experience.
  • JEDCampSFBay exceeded all of my expectations! I learned based on my interests, and this experience will definitely affect my day-to-day work.
  • What an inspirational group of innovators and motivators! This experience today gave me so much to bring back to my school! I am excited to share and to continue to develop and learn from this network of exceptional educators!!!!
