Came across the idea of running Edcamps. It’s big in the states – teachers coming together to run their own PD days without prorammes that are preplanned and driven from leaders top-down. You can attend Edcamp if you are prepared to present or at the least contribute to professional discussion and/or the backchannel conversations (I think this is via Twitter, blogs etc). The programme evolves at the last minute. None are running in Australia. Would it work here? What are the pros and cons?
Would you come to an Edcamp?
