EdCamp Friendswood is an unconference.

What Does That Mean?

Come enjoy a day with colleagues from the Houston-Clear Lake area and beyond. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.

During the first hour, you will have time to meet other educators (continental breakfast provided). There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles.

Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend sessions. The rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.
You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!

What is the Cost?
EdCamp Friendswood is free! Lunch will be on your own at a local eatery. We will provide a list of shops the day of the event.

What Should I Bring?
Bring a friend. A laptop/tablet with wireless Internet is useful. It will allow you to take notes and view websites discussed throughout the day.
