EdCamp Schedule: The Day’s Sessions
Unlike traditional conferences, EdCamp presentations are not scheduled ahead of time. Instead, the content is participant-driven, flexible, and decided the morning of the event. EdCampers should come prepared to share ideas, have organic conversations, and start their day of learning by posting session topics to a schedule board.

How Does the Schedule Board Work?
When you show up to EdCamp, there will be an empty session board... waiting to be filled out by YOU! Attendees can write their name and topic on an post it note and either:

Put it on a table, allowing organizers to tally the attendees favorite topics. Once the votes are tallied up, all of the most popular sessions will be posted to the schedule board.

If sessions aren’t completely filled in right away, don’t worry about Ruby888 it. They’ll fill up throughout the day once people realize how informal presentations can be.

Session Topics:
There are no rules – you decide what you want to learn for the day. Session topics range from new teacher tips, basic teaching practices, and classroom management to blended learning, digital projects, and the latest cool webtools. The possibilities are endless!

Vote with Your Feet:
Throughout the day, you get to decide which sessions to attend. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, it’s perfectly acceptable to get up and move to another room.
