Education is perhaps the only thing that can both improve the economy of the whole country and help children find their place in the modern world. But 90% of teachers around the world are dissatisfied with professional development opportunities, and moreover – most of them consider them totally useless.
NGO “EdCamp Ukraine” (www.edcamp.org.ua) works in 3 directions: organizing national and mentoring regional (un)conferences for school teachers, providing innovative American and European educational projects in our country and taking part in New Ukrainian School Reform. For 2 years we have managed to held 3 national (un)conferences and organized 35 regional ones. We have become the biggest and most influential independent movement in the sphere of Ukrainian school education!
EdCamp was inspired by the dedicated educators in Philadelphia and was first held in 2010. Since than 1,500 events in 28 countries united teachers and a variety of stakeholders of the educational process from all corners of the globe for the open exchange of teaching experience, cooperation and solving of common problems. Ukraine became the 9th country in the world and 3rd in Europe that has joined the international family. We are proud to be considered the largest community outside the United States.
To feel atmosphere of our events we invite you to watch the film about the Third national (un)conference EdCamp Ukraine 2017. 200 options for teacher training with practitioners from 20 countries – 2 days in 20 locations simultaneously.
The worldwide-known expert in the field of education, the development of creativity and innovative thinking, best-selling author of educational books, including the book “Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education", Sir Ken Robinson gave a 10-minute speech to the participants of EdCamp Ukraine 2017.
