EdCamp Santiago: The First Seven Days [Kindle Edition]

Dedicated to all the educators, world-wide, who have participated in an EdCamp.

Go forth, spread the word to the far corners of the Earth, something is happening.

There’s something going on, a R(E)volution in teacher professional development. It’s called EdCamp….EdCamp Santiago: The First Seven Days

EdCamp Santiago: A R(E)volution in Professional Development (Volume 1) [Paperback]

This book tells the story of EdCamp Santiago. EdCamp is a R(E)volution in professional develoment. It is free, participant-driven, conversation-based, democratic PD for teachers, by teachers.

There are no plenaries, no publishers book displays, just teachers talking to teachers, sharing best practice: what works in the classroom, practical, not theoretical knowledge.

EdCamp Santiago

A conference, that’s not a conference. An “unconference” is a better term. A new paradigm in teacher professional development, a new, creative, innovative way of staying up to date on what matters most to teachers. As I said, it’s a paradigm shift in teacher professional development. Let me repeat: Paradigm Shift.
