NISD to Host EdCamp
Northwest ISD will host EdCamp, a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers and their needs. Unlike traditional conferences, which have schedules set months in advance by the people running the conference, EdCamp has an agenda that is created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. People could pay hundreds of dollars to attend another conference, or they could go to EdCamp for free.
NISD’s EdCamp will be held Saturday, January 17 at James M. Steele Accelerated High School (606 North Walnut Street, Ronaoke, 76262) from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
