Swanson, K. (2014, May). Edcamp: Teachers Take Back Professional Development.

Edcamps are free, participatory events organized by educators for educators. Attendees collaboratively determine the schedule of sessions on the morning of the event. The first Edcamp was organized by a group of educators (including me) after we met in September 2009 at BarCamp Philly, an unconference focused on technology. After experiencing the passion, sharing, and excitement that surrounded that event, we wanted to develop a similar learning model for teachers and administrators.
