WHAT IS EDCAMP: CHANGE IN 4 DIMENSIONS

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

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

EVERYONE ACTS

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

TOOL FOR BUILDING UP THE COMMUNITITES

Educators hold their own (un)conferences to unite teachers in their communities for solving

the most concerning problems.

PLATFORM FOR THE REFORM

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

GOOD PEOPLE.  WHO ARE THEY AND WHAT FOR

People often say, "Just being good is not a job". But can the education
system be considered successful if it brings up wonderful professionals, widely skilled people
with a great amount of knowledge, but – without developed values or humanity?

 

As history shows, the most terrible things in the world were done by people
who were smart and well-educated
. They lacked love for people, inner values and orientation.

In short, they were NO GOOD PEOPLE.

 

Last year, we already said that each and every one of us
has "light" and "dark" sides, something from the
"white", and the "black" crows,
that it is important to find and strengthen the best qualities in every one of us.

 

It is also necessary not to rush and simply condemn everything in the world that seems "bad" to us in the world. Let's better ask ourselves – why is it bad and what shall we do to improve it.

 

What can be done in education to grow the future citizens of Ukraine
to be GOOD PEOPLE
? About this we will talk at this year's national event.

SIX PRINCIPLES OF EDCAMP

"We need education that focuses
on
the internal values, that
teaches us how to become decent people",

the Nobel Peace Prize laureate

Dalai Lama XIV

Free of charge

Edcamp is offered at no cost
to attendees. This is a strict condition guaranteeing equality

of opportunities.

Independence

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

Free initiative

Everyone can host EdСamp
in their area: any local educational department, school, public organization or informal group
of teachers.

The program is created by participants on the first day

On the first morning
all participants plan the timetable and session topics. Due to
the spontaneity, the schedule
of events meets the needs
of the participants
as much as possible.

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.

The "law of two feet"

Attendees find the sessions they want to take part in on their own.
You may “drop out” of irrelevant presentations or those presentations you don’t like.

WHO PREPARES EDCAMP UKRAINE 2019 AND WHY

 

EDCAMP UKRAINE 2018:

IT SEEMS IT WAS ONLY YESTERDAY

Here is the final video we watched at the closing of the event:

Some photos for the mood:

TREE OF LIFE IN EDUCATION. GROWN IN UKRAINE

The Tree of Life has long been a popular and important symbol for Ukrainians. It represents

the Universe – the lower, the middle (which is the Earth), and the upper worlds; Time – past, present, future; and the Family – ancestors, present generation, descendants. It is cherished and cared

for by Birds – its creators and guards.

 

We believe that the Tree of Life is the best symbol for education, too: in order to harvest good fruit in the future, a strong and healthy trunk of current work is needed, based on the roots of the best previous experience. And, of course, the "birds" are necessary: the creators and guardians

of development – caring and inspired educators.

Since our own school years, we all remember Taras Shevchenko’s words, "And you shall study

the foreign, but you shall not forget your own". Ukrainian education is open to the world’s best practice, however, we have something to share with the world, too!

 

The focus of the Fifth National (Un)conference for School Teachers EdCamp Ukraine 2019

is therefore on the best practices in Ukrainian Education.

THE LONG TAIL EFFECT

It has been proven that the most interesting things start after EdCamps.
As a result of your communication with many people, new acquaintances as well as new ideas,
are born: this is the so-called
long tail effect.

After EdCamp Ukraine 2018, we:

held the First National summit of 2015-2019 Regional Coordinators,
which gathered 140 people,

created The Declaration of Quality Advanced Training Service Providers – containing 50 criteria – and brought together leading educational organizations,

conducted a large-scale testing of 5 anticorruption tools for working with young people, bringing together 540 educators from across the country,

organized an expedition of Ukrainian educators to Tibet and met with the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dalai Lama XIV, whose achievements in Social, Emotional and Ethical Learning have already been implemented,

launched our own magazine  about interesting things and trends in education, as well as about the development of the EdCamp movement in Ukraine and in the world,

conducted an anti-discriminatory expertise of textbooks for grades 9, 10 and 2,
as well as several series of trainings for author's groups and expert circles,
thus lowering the percentage of textbooks that do not meet
the requirements of examination down to 2%!

held the Global Dignity Day in Ukraine for the fourth time, engaging 100,000 children and adults from 10,000 schools,

initiated the creation of a national consortium of non-governmental organizations working in the field of continuing education and advanced training,

established the national office of Ukraine EdCamp movement in Kharkiv, –
from a fire extinguisher and a warehouse to our own policies and code of conduct!
