EdCampNYC, Founder and organizer, 2010 – present
EdCampNYC is an unconference for educators in the NYC metro area and beyond. After attending the inaugural edcamp, EdcampPhilly in May 2010, I was immediately inspired to launch one in NYC. I’m proud that our event was one of the first spin-offs and part of an amazing movement of teacher-driven professional development and learning.
An unconference is a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered on a theme or purpose. The term “unconference” has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as high fees and sponsored presentations.
