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
is a change agent
Tool for building up
Platform for the reform
Open exchange of teaching experience and collaboration based on the "Give – Get" principle.
An effective model
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

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

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

Some pictures for good mood
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:
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.
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
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.
