Transform Your District’s Professional Learning: How the Edcamp Model Can Empower Educators and Transform Culture

On October 27, 2015 Future Ready Schools (FRS) held the kick-off webinar that is part of the FRS Leadership Network, a one-stop shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders. This Google Hangout explored how the Edcamp model—a free, participant-driven, collaborative style of professional learning—can inspire and empower educators and transform a school district’s culture. It is a model that helps educators discover new ways of learning and teaching and reignites passion in the classroom that is passed on to students across the globe. To date, more than 50,000 educators have attended an Edcamp. This webinar gave leaders

  • an understanding of the Edcamp model of professional learning;
  • a sense of the importance of voice and choice in an educator’s professional learning experience;
  • practical ways to utilize the model during the school year with staff; and
  • tips and resources on where to begin.

As one of the founding Edcamp board members and its executive director, Hadley Ferguson shared experiences of educators around the nation and why this model of professional learning has exploded across the globe. The Edcamp Foundation is an official FRS coalition partner.
