PATINS Winter Edcamp 2021


Title: PATINS Winter Edcamp 2021

Description: “Baby, it’s cold outside!” Pour a mug of hot chocolate, put on your winter gear, and cozy up for PATINS winter virtual Edcamp! On February 9, we are pairing our weekly #PatinsIcam Twitter chat with a live ski lodge feel in Zoom for conversation surrounding specific education-related topics on a designated slope (the Zoom room of your choice.) Grab your skis and join us at 8:16 pm EST (you read that correctly, 8:16!) in the “ski lodge” for a pre-party of light conversation and music before the Edcamp official kick-off time!

What is an Edcamp? An Edcamp is a form of "unconference" designed specifically for educators and their needs. There will be two, 20 minute sessions of your choice to attend and actively engage in the conversation. Having your cameras on is encouraged but not mandatory. Have a winter themed green screen image? Show it off with your Zoom background or download one from PATINS!

Unlike traditional conferences, which have schedules set months in advance, PATINS Winter Edcamp has an agenda that is created by you at the time of your registration. Instead of one person talking for 20 minutes, all participants are encouraged to have discussions. While two PATINS staff members will be in the room, they will be facilitating the conversation and not offering a specific training. All of the space and time are reserved for the topics you want to talk about; your interests, passions and questions! All you need to do is check out the topics, hop on the lift and cruise up to your selected slope! If that slope doesn’t give you the adventure you were hoping for, no problem...head to another!

Register for PATINS Winter Edcamp by February 2, 2021 for your topics to be considered for the EdCamp discussions.
