EdCampNOLA is a day of learning that will advance the best practices in K-12 teachers from the Greater New Orleans area. It is a free day of learning put on for teachers by teachers. The goal of the day is to share exciting 21st century practices while collaborating and networking with other teachers from this area. We hope to build a network of colleagues with whom to brainstorm and learn.
This will be our seventh EdCampNOLA and we can't wait to once again meet and greet other great educators from around the area.
Come and join us as we discuss whatever interests you. Do you want to share what you are doing or is there something that you want to learn more about? We can talk about:
EdCampNOLA is a great place to be! Bring a friend to enjoy the experience. You can divide and conquer and then compare notes afterwards.
