For those of you who have never gone to an Edcamp before, please make a note of the unusual part of the morning where we will build the schedule. Edcamp doesn’t believe in paying people to come and talk at you about teaching! At an Edcamp, the people attending – the participants – facilitate sessions on teaching and learning! So Edcamp won’t succeed without a whole bunch of you wanting to run a session of some kind! What kinds of sessions might you run?

  • Discussions on issues in education
  • Share a model lesson or unit
  • Conduct an inquiry session into a new tool
  • Share something you’re passionate about
  • Discuss new things you’d like to learn more about
  • Share activities you’re looking to improve
  • Anything else you can think of that will get other interested teachers to come and share with you!

Edcamp Philly should be a great day of learning! Even if you don’t feel like facilitating a session, please come ready to share ideas.

Lunch

We are planning to once again offer free pizza for lunch – we’re looking for some sponsors!

Parking

There is a lot at the end of Arch St (23rd and Arch) and you also use ParkWhiz  to find and reserve inexpensive parking in the area.

SEPTA/Mass Transit

30th Street Station is the closest rail station. The school is an easy 10-minute walk from there. Exit through the 30th St exit and walk East down JFK Boulevard. Cross 22nd St and turn left up 22nd St toward Arch St. The school is at the corner of 22nd and Arch Streets.

Green line trolleys from City Hall and from West Philly stop at 22nd and Arch. Get off at the 22nd Street stop and when you are above ground, walk North on 22nd St (follow the same direction as the traffic). The school is at the corner of 22nd and Arch Streets.
