Edcamps are free to participants. Anyone who is an administrator or who has an administration certification can attend. Edcamp Newark Leadership is also open to all central office and school-based administrators, teacher leaders and aspiring leaders. Personal Learning Networks are developed at Edcamps.
Edcamps are unconferences. Organizers set the schedule for the day; the sessions are determined by the participants on the day of the event. Anyone can lead a session or a discussion. The day is completely participant-driven.
Edcamps have WiFi access, so participants are just asked to bring mobile devices or laptops. Paper and pencil will work as well. Participants should bring anything that will make the day meaningful. Edcamp is a great way to meet new people. Registered participants can tweet using the #edcampNEWARKldr.
After the Edcamp, participants can keep the conversations going through blogging and bringing the Edcamp model to their schools for teachers. Each participant also earns professional development hours for their attendance. All meals are provided and participants will have the opportunity to participate in a tricky tray auction for awesome gifts and door prizes.
