The Edcamp Foundation team is really excited to be partnering with the United States Department of Education for Edcamp USDOE on June 6, 2014.
This collaboration was borne out of important discussion regarding professional development for teachers, microcredentials, and lifelong learning at Educon in Philadelphia this year.
The purpose of Edcamp USDOE is to bring together educators and policy makers in open, transparent, authentic conversation. The day will explore a variety of themes, and topics will be generated on the day of the event.
As space is limited for the event, we'll be keeping the free event open to all by running a lottery. The Foundation felt this was important so that a diverse mix of people got the opportunity to attend. Of course, we wish that we had enough room for everyone, but unfortunately the space available won't permit that. So, please put your name in the lottery once and we'll notify you in early April about your status as an attendee.
I'm excited that Edcampers all over the nation and world will have the opportunity to model this invigorating form of teacher-driven professional development for our nation's leaders. Join us!
