Edcamp Literacy: An “Unconference” Opportunity at IRA 2014
Try an "unconference" PD model: Register for the free Edcamp Literacy event at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 9, in New Orleans. An Edcamp is a participant-driven professional development session where the attendees have the power to set the agenda and drive the discussion. Educators create the agenda on the spot and facilitate discussions based on what topics are important to them.
Julie Ramsay shares how to get the most out of the short time you have at the conference.
Enjoy Featured Research Sessions, poster sessions, and our annual Research Awards with an address by Timothy Shanahan.
