The edcamp model as Summer Professional Development

Starting this Tuesday, July 5, Burlington High School in Burlington, MA will open its doors to edcamp Tuesdays. Every Tuesday from 8-12 educators, administrators, parents, etc can come together for free, participant driven conversations centered around best practices and innovations in education. Occasionally we will bring in specialists to work with us or attend remotely via Skype. All sessions will be accesible from afar via a global Google Doc note share. This feature will highlight and model the importance of collaborative notes and transparency in professional development.  

All are welcome to attend and we hope you can make it one Tuesday this summer and continue to spread the word about effective PD that is happening under the edcamp model.

If you have any questions please visit our website and fill out the help desk form. If you plan on attending there is an “I’m Attending” tab on our website sidebar for you to show others you are attending. There is also a board for posting session ideas and future session suggestions. Please use these forums so we can make edcamp Tuesdays the best experience for all involved.
