We need your help getting the word out about EdCampOKC on February 23rd! We’re now 18 days out, and we have about 50 people registered – We’ve got room for 250 more! This is a fantastic professional development opportunity in the Oklahoma City area, and it’s 100% FREE for attendees! Our first EdCampOKC will be held at Yukon High School.
Here is the slightly modified text of an email EdCampOKC organizer Tammy Parks shared recently with our Oklahoma TechDirectors Listserv members. Please copy and paste this email and send it to other teachers in Oklahoma you know, as well as those in surrounding states (especially southern Kansas and north Texas.) You can download the EdCampOKC flyer in PDF format and press release PDF to attach them directly to your email message.
Personal invitations to EdCamp are very important! Please consider sending several this week to educators you know.
I am writing to share an upcoming opportunity for a FREE education “unconference” scheduled for February 23rd at Yukon High School. EdCamps are free, democratic, participant-driven professional development conferences for K-12 educators worldwide. Attached is an EdCampOKC flyer and press release. If you have any questions about the conference, feel free to contact any of the organizers listed on www.edcampokc.org/organizers. If you are not familiar with the EdCamp model, you may want to check out this short video for more information. www.youtube.com/watch?v=gr7teMAk-hA I also recommend this EdCamp TED Talk (16 mins) by Kristen Swanson, one of the founders of EdCamp. http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxPhiladelphiaED-Kristen-Swan
