THE FOURTH NATIONAL (UN)CONFERENCE
for school teachers

All is going to be white as snow!

WHAT EDCAMP IS: 4-DIMENSION CHANGES

EdCamp (un)conferences are held in a new participant-driven format for educators to co-create all over the world.

Place for professional development

Everyone

is a change agent

Tool for building up

the communities

Platform for the reform

Open exchange of teaching experience and collaboration based on the "Give – Get" principle.

 

An effective model
for transformations
in education at the level
of a daily lesson, and
a school, which promotes advanced values and broadens a world view.

Educators hold (un)conferences

to unite teachers in their communities for solving
the most concerning problems.

The teachers, who attend EdCamps, become leaders
of the New Ukrainian School, taking part in its development and introducing changes
on the ground.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT EDCAMP

"RARA AVIS": A BIRD, WHICH IS AT THE SIDE OF GOOD

"Rara avis" is the name we use to lovingly call Ukrainian pro-active pedagogues-edcampers who by their openness to new experience and aspiration for changes in education and society in general stand out in their communities.

 

We understand that each of us, if we speak figuratively,
has something from both "black" and "white" birds. The purpose
of the EdCamp movement in Ukraine is to support educators
in understanding and disclosing their very best qualities.

Responsible teachers choose the path of everyday good deeds and the fight against unproductive deeds in education. How this happens, see the first series of cartoon "Where do rara avises (bili vorony) fly in education?" Or look through the comic book pages about 2 years of EdCamp Ukraine activity.

6 TENETS OF EDCAMP

Free of charge

Edcamp is offered at no cost

to attendees. It is a strict condition guaranteeing equality of chances.

The program is created by participants on the first day

On the first day morning

all participants plan the timetable

and session topics. Due to

the spontaneity, the plan
of events meets the needs
of the participants

as much as possible.

Independence

EdCamps do not have "supervisors" from the public
or business sectors. Everyone can express their thoughts freely, take part in a discussion and defend their opinion.

Everyone can become

a speaker

If you attend an EdСamp, you have the right to speak there. Everyone can share their experience in the uniting atmosphere.

Free initiative

Everyone can host EdСamp

in their area: any local

educational department,

school, public organization

or informal group of teachers.

The "law of two feet"

 

Attendees find the sessions they want to take part in on their own. It is an effective way to “drop out” irrelevant
or presented in an unattractive way presentations.

It will be a two-day work in small groups, which only
the participants of the national (un)conference will be able to join.

Everything is simple. The main criterion is your motivation for development and willingness to be responsible! Both young specialists
and experienced educators are invited to take part in the event. The subject you teach, the age of your students, the position you occupy, and the status of your educational establishment do not affect the results of the contest selection. We expect a very big contest. Last year the number of applicants was 4 persons per a place so do your best to be persuasive in your application form.

AFTER-EDCAMP

 

At the (un)conference we expand our outlook, developing horizontally. Since this year, you can stay here longer for a more profound, i.e. vertical, development. Key speakers invite you to two-day
master classes.

EDCAMP UKRAINE 2018… ALL IS GOING TO BE WHITE!

The main emphasis of the upcoming national (un)conference is education, built on the values. We at EdCamp Ukraine are convinced that our professional qualities are determined by personal features, and those, in turn, are based on our choice of life principles.

 

We call for the abandonment of all ‘toxic’ things and call for the ecological choices – thinking, relationships, teaching and, ultimately, life.
It is impossible to teach others about those things which we can not do on our own.

 

How often do you think about this?

 

Take or give away? Who should be responsible? How to stay calm and act decisively? What does our happiness depend on? Why does self-awareness lead to freedom? What does the dignity consist of? Is patience a strength or weakness? What provides ease? To pretend to be
a good person or to be one?

 

 We suggest you just now to think about the meanings laid down in our familiar from childhood words:

Responsibility

 

Taking it on yourself means understanding your role
and playing it on time.
This is the best way to awaken your powers and gain independence, get rid of laziness and carelessness.

 

Kindness

It means trying to understand another person. If we take others as they are, it does not cause bad feelings. Our kindness reaches the hearts and helps others
to change.

Honesty

This means you say what you think and do what you say. After confessing to the mistake, you do not make it again and do not justify yourself. You do not pretend to be a good person
but you are.

And we will continue the conversation at EdCamp Ukraine 2018. Together, we will turn two days of the (un)conference into a space
of studying this and other principles, their disclosing and promoting in everyday life.
