Edcamp? What's that?

As educators we are constantly bombarded with terms and acronyms. About 3 years ago a new word entered my vernacular, it was Edcamp. It has taken me about 3 years to truly understand and appreciate what an Edcamp is; an organic, participant driven, professional development for educators. As our state prepares for its fourth annual EdcampRI, I would like to give you 10 things to expect when you join us at Rhode Island College on Saturday morning. What? You haven't registered yet?
