This was originally going to be a post just about EdCamp Social Studies which is happening next Saturday in Philadelphia, but then I realized that there are a lot of EdCamps happening this spring. You might be wondering what an EdCamp is, the short explanation is that EdCamps are free, informal conferences organized by educators for educators. Anyone can attend and anyone can present. Earlier this month I recorded a short Skype conversation with one of the EdCamp Foundation’s founders, Dr. Kristen Swanson. That video is embedded below.
Here’s Kristen’s TEDx Talk about EdCamp.
