Who can participate
in EdCamp Ukraine 2016
Both young and experienced educators
of Ukrainian schools are invited to take part
in the event. It does not matter what subjects you teach and how old your students are to be selected
for participation. The major criterion is your motivation for development and your willingness
to take responsibility!
Since the original EdCamp in Philadelphia (USA)
in 2010 there have been over 950 events around
the world in 26 countries which have brought together more than 70,000 passionate educators.
Ukraine became the 9th country in the world
and the 3rd one in Europe, that joined the EdCamp movement. We organized the unforgettable
EDCAMP UKRAINE 2015 and 11 regional
MINI-EDCAMPS all over the country. The format
of pedagogical unconference has been in demand.
WHO AND WHY ARE ORGANIZING EDCAMP UKRAINE 2016
SIX TENETS OF EDCAMP
Edcamp is offered at no cost
to attendees which enables educators from any and all schools,
both from town and the countryside, both the experienced and beginners,
EdCamp is held for training each other in a democratic atmosphere.
Every educator has an opportunity
to express their thoughts freely,
take part in a discussion
and defend their opinion.
Everyone can host EdСamp
in their area: any local educational authority, any school,
or informal group of teachers.
On the morning of the first day a timetable and session topics
are planned by all participants.
Due to the spontaneity the plan
of events meets the needs
of the participants
as much as possible.
Created by Participants
on the First Day
If you attend EdСamp,
you are empowered to drive
the conversation. Everyone who cares how education is developing in Ukraine can share their experience
in the uniting atmosphere.
on the "Law of Two Feet"
Attendees find the sessions meeting their needs on their own. This ”law” ensures an effective way to “drop out” the presentations that are not topical for educators or presented
in an unattractive way.
