On October 9th, Randolph will be collaborating with Morris Knolls, Morris Hills and the Morris County School of Technology in an exciting conference ~ ed camp style. It is sometimes referred to as an un-conference because it is developed in the moment by the attending educators. We expect to have approximately 550 educators contributing to the sessions throughout the day. We will end the day with a keynote address from Maryann Woods~Murphy ~ 2010 NJ Teacher of the Year.
The short video below will give you some introductory information about what an ed camp can look like.
We will be guided by the following principles:
- All sessions are participant driven
- There is no need to be an expert ~ all educators are welcome to share their experience in any and all sessions
- A very cool feature is the “law of two feet” meaning that if you start in a session there are no “rules” that prohibit you from leaving that one to attend a different one – or two!
We are very excited about this day and I will keep you posted on the results. Many thanks to the instructional coaches from all 4 schools and to Kerry Eberhardt, Ryan MacNaughton, and Todd Toriello.
