Professional learning during an EdCamp

I think it is important for teachers to always engage in professional learning and become life long learners. In today’s world new methods of teaching and technology changes rapidly. For the sake of staying up to date on new teaching methods EdCamps can be a valuable tool.

EdCamps are completely free and participant driven letting the participants take the session in the directions they are passionate about learning further. This is more beneficial compared to hiring an expensive key note speaker. Participants will have a great deal of experience in the field allowing the ability to dive deep into the subject.

During our EdCam experience I found it beneficial to listen to others experiences in out door learning environments as children and how they differed from mine. We shared ideas on how to implement outdoor environments in our own future classrooms.
