The most important thing in school
is Teacher!

Ineffective professional development for teachers critically slows down any learning revolution in schools. The EdCamp un(conferences) offer an innovative solution to this pressing problem.

The place where
"white crows" flock together

EdCamp was inspired
by the dedicated educators from the U.S. and was first held in 2010. More than 2,500 events in 44 countries united teachers and 
a variety of stakeholders
from all corners of the globe
for the open exchange

What is unique

With the new discussion format EdCamp 
is submitted to the law
of "two feet": the participants determine the program
and the progress of the event themselves. After completing EdCamp all feel the so-called "long-tail effect" – the event lives on continuing 
of discussions and collaborative work of teachers.

What we have done so far

During  three years of existence, we have run 5 national educational events in Kharkiv, anti-crisis online EdCamp 
and 186 regional
(un) conferences. Thank you
for mentoring to The EdCamp Foundation, support to The Press, Education and Culture Department of the US Embassy in Ukraine, Support to Anti-Corruption Champion Institutions (SACCI) Program in Ukraine, the Civil Peace Service GIZ, United Nations Population Fund in Ukraine, the Heinrich Boll Foundation Ofiice, RANOK publishing house, Shkilnyi Svit publishing group and more than 80 partner organizations.

in their school, their city
or region."

didn’t brought templates of ready lessons or presentations, but we managed to get something far more valuable: experience and knowledge, but also inspiration, which will last for the entire coming year".
