Edcamp Iowa 2016 – AMES!

Edcamp Iowa was the first Edcamp that I ever went to and I have been hooked on Edcamps since then.  I have traveled up to the Twin Cities and down to Kansas City for Edcamps.  Every Edcamp that I go to has been a great learning experience and has reenergized me as an educator.

Edcamps are the true form of personalized learning as you control what topics there are during the day and you vote with your feet, if that session does not meet your needs then you just go to one that will.  Edcamps are only as effective as the people that attend, the more that show up and the more that participate, the better.  There are no presenters, there are no handouts, and there are no corporations runnings sessions.

Edcamp Iowa usually happens in 5 locations around the state at once and this year we are hosting the central location here in Ames.  On Saturday, February 13th at Ames Middle School we will be having a great day of learning.

If you want more information, you can go to the site at http://edcampiowa.org/ or watch any of the videos below.  If you are already sold on the Edcamp and want to register, you just need to go to http://ift.tt/1MEn5Bs

It is free and it is what you make of it, bring along others to make the day even better.  If you have any more questions, please free free to email me at patrick.donovan@ames.k12.ia.us
