What does it cost?
Nothing! Like all edcamps, edcamp Friends is free. Newtown Friends School is happy to provide complimentary breakfast and lunch for all participants. Details will be shared closer to the event.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
Edcampers are encouarged to prepare at their own comfort level. Some edcampers come without doing any prep work; some come with an idea of what they want to discus. Others prepare more formally. If you do prepare to present a session, make sure it will last no more than 20 minutes so as to allow time to facilitate a discussion on your topic. Edcamp is about conversations, not fancy presentations. You don’t have to lead a session, but we do encourage you to share your voice, share your passions, share your best practices as well as your dilemmas, and concerns.
I DON'T WORK AT A FRIENDS SCHOOL. CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE?
Of course! Although edcamp Friends is designed to facilitate collaboration amongst educators at Quaker schools, we welcome attendees from all types of schools.
