What makes EdCamp an unconference?

Unlike traditional conferences which have schedules set months in advance by the people running the conference, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. Sponsors don’t have their own special sessions or tables, all of the space and time are reserved for the things the people there want to talk about. People could pay hundreds of dollars to attend another conference, or they could go to Edcamp for free. Built on principles of connected and participatory learning, Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions, and questions. Teachers who attend Edcamp can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions.

Look at us, we got a new fancy new logo to represent Chattanooga!
The edcamp apple is topped with Lookout Mountain, home to Rock City and Ruby Falls, and the M is a silhouette of our aquarium, one of the world's largest freshwater aquariums, located downtown on our riverfront. Both can be seen from many areas throughout our city.
