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
of teaching experience, cooperation and problem-solving. 
Watch cartoons about "white crows" on our YouTube-channel.

What is unique

With the new discussion format EdCamp 
(un)conference
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.

Teachers’ voices 

"Responsible teachers, who are breathed in for a long time through EdCamp Ukraine,
are able to start reforms from below  each in his/her place:
in their school, their city
or region."

Nadija Bedikjan, history teacher of Teaching and Educational Complex № 13, Odesa

"EdCamp Ukraine showed
that indeed changing education for the better we will change
the future
of our country".

Tetjana Bondar, Assistant Professor of the Department
of Philosophy and Economics of Education, Poltava Regional Institute of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education, Poltava

"After EdCamp Ukraine we
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".

Natalija Kidalova, teacher
of Melitopolj school № 3, Zaporizhzhja region

The purpose of (un)conference is the creation of a new generation of teachers,
who won’t use old stereotypes
of learning".

Lilija Kryhovecj-Khom’jak, economics teacher of Ukrainian Gymnasium named after I. Franko, Ternopilj

"EdCamp Ukraine is,
first of all, the titanic work
and organizational talent
of the team, qualitative
and useful content, new thoughts and modern ideas, meaningful communication, new friends and acquaintances".

Valerij Berezhnyj, Head Master of School № 11 in Lozova, Kharkiv region

"EdCamp Ukraine for teachers is like Disneyland for children: whirlpool of positive emotions, unforgettable impressions, crazy ideas... Having been once, will never forget!"

Ruslana Bjerdavceva,
the teacher of chemistry, biology and ecology
of Higher Vocational School № 164, Kropyvnytskyi

"These people, their energy, strength and ideas became
a flash-light for me shining through the darkness
of indifference and despair.
I realized that we should
not be afraid to experiment
and implement our ideas.
Every teacher should survive his/her EdCamp".

Natalija Bovsunivsjka, informatics teacher
of Rozsoshenka school, Poltava region

"This event has given me
an opportunity to understand fully how the teaching profession influences
the development of the child, and sometimes even his/her fate. If EdCamp Ukraine develops in our country, school and training will become a happy holiday
and great pleasure for our children".

Olena Sopina, English teacher of the Specialized Boarding school "Sich Collegium", Zaporizhzhja

"We should not only get
the experience we should also share it. This is one of the trends of EdCamp Ukraine".
