The first national (un)conference
for school teachers
We are building a community of responsible teachers!
What is EdCamp
EdCamp (un)conferences are conducted all over the world in a new format of discussions specifically
Teachers get together
to discuss the issues
they are most
for professional growth
Open exchange of teaching experience, cooperation
and solution of shared tasks on the basis of the principle "Give – Get"
("Give, if you can –
Take, if you want").
Community of the best change agents
Efficient model for provoking changes in education
on the level of each individual school, the region and the country as a whole –
we are strong together!
Who can take part
in EdCamp Ukraine
A little history
Both novices in teaching and “veterans”
of school education in Ukraine are invited
to participate. During the competitive selection
of participants neither the subject (s)he teaches nor the age of students is important.
The main criterion is motivation
for the development and willingness
to take responsibility for the future!
EdCamp was founded in Philadelphia (USA)
in the summer of 2010. Since then,
over 550 events have been held in 15 countries, bringing together more than 25 000 teachers.
In Ukraine, this unique event will be held
for the first time. And we do hope that
the educational (un)conference will become
a sought-after and regular event.
Who and why creates EdCamp Ukraine
Brain center of program committee "First of all, we are students and only then experts"
Content whiz and coordination of volunteers "We understand that stay put is a step backward"
Powerful PR and promotion "We are convinced that the teachers are the best agents to promote changes in schools"
Responsible for relations with NGOs "We believe in Ukraine working to achieve a better future"

Principles of EdCamp
The participants do not pay for entering EdCamp.
It allows to guarantee
that different teachers
both from big cities
and far-off regions
will be able to participate.
EdCamp is held
to teach each other
in the democratic environment. The teachers will have an opportunity
to express their thoughts freely without
any outside influence.
Anyone can host
a district administration
of education, an individual school, a public organization or an informal group
of the (un)conference

of communication are planned jointly with all
the participants. Due to this spontaneity the plan
of events will meet the needs of all the participants.
The program is defined

an efficient way to "drop"

to the teachers
in an unattractive manner.
