The PBS KIDS Edcamp is making it’s way to Washington, DC for the first time
Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 9am-12pm at Educare of Washington, D.C.
PBS KIDS Edcamp is a unique “unconference” professional development training provided for early childhood educators (Pre-K, kindergarten, first and second-grade teachers, Head Start teachers, in-home child care providers, child care center providers, after-school program providers, family members, and others are welcome) at no cost!
The “Unconference” Model
Edcamp session topics are generated by educators on the day of the Edcamp…..this gives each participant an opportunity to produce ideas about what they want to discuss and learn, and along with peer participants, get to decide what topics will be covered! The PBS KIDS Edcamp environment is based around a few main principles……
Educators choose what they want to discuss and what they want to learn. Session topics are generated by educators on the day of the Edcamp. Educators come with ideas, and—together with their peers—decide on what topics they want to cover with no formal leader.
Educator Experience, not Expert Presentations
All educator experiences are equally valued and respected. The Edcamp model taps into the wealth of experiences by providing a space for educators to share their ideas and thoughts with each other. Expertise is derived from the collective and collaborative conversation.
Rule of Two Feet
If at any time a participant feels he or she is not getting the professional learning they hoped for in a session, they are free and encouraged to move on to another session…..it’s just that simple!!
Free to Attend
There is absolutely no cost to attend and participate in an Edcamp. Space is limited, so please register ASAP!!
