EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL THE SPRING. STAY TUNED!
What is an EduCamp?
The goal of the Saskatoon EduCamp is to bring together, for a morning, people who are passionate about teaching and learning and can see the powerful ways technology can deepen and enhance learning. This opportunity will also allow teachers to consider how technology can support acheiving goals established within their teacher learning groups, departments or CIT's. Each person who attends is expected to talk about something or volunteer (registration, set-up, teardown, etc.).
Our Theme this year will be Digital Citizenship.
There will be a number of sessions which will be picked by the attendees at the start of the day. Attendees should bring any gadgets they have: laptop, mobile/smart phone, tablet, camera, laser pointer, etc.
