EdCamp RRISD Summer. Let's Make it a Tradition.
So, we are adding an EdCamp into the annual Round Rock ISD Summer Professional Development Conference. It's a massive undertaking in itself over eight days with more than 300 session and over 5,000 attendees. More of a marathon than a sprint. But, this EdCamp is important.
It's important because it's a bridge. As of 7:36 on August 4th, we have 70 educators registered. And close to 75% of the registered attendees are not from Round Rock ISD. That is a huge celebration for us. Our goal is to become a destination for professional development for all of Texas. Guests at the EdCamp will get a free pass to the afternoon classes that are part of the regular conference so they can experience the level of professionalism Round Rock ISD presenters bring to their sessions.
We will be using the Round Rock ISD Professional Development Google+ Community to create the session board and you can watch it in real time. Attendees will make suggestions and +1 others suggestions to help us create the session board.
Even if you are not with us tomorrow, follow #rrisdpd on Twitter, check in with the RRISD PD G+ Community, even check out our introduction document to get to know the attendees, and look at the session board to see the shared notes documents for the true vicarious experience.
