Not everyone wants to go to #EdCamp

I assisted a group of local leaders explore an Edcamp option earlier in the week for a leadership meeting. This group consisted of people leading schools through real challenges and I respect them for their experience and results. It was fascinating to watch them work through the obvious uncertainty that an Edcamp brings with it.

They were worried topics they “needed” addressed would not be covered.

They were concerned that an Edcamp would deliver on “fun,” but not learning.

Networking and connections could percolate in this informal setting however.

They really struggled with how to ensure they provided an event to meet the minimum needed experience. And EdCamp isn’t that; you do not ordinarily get up early on a Saturday to travel to a minimal collection of what you have to know. You go to something “scary awesome” (where did I read that lately? I’d love to give credit!) to learn about inspirational things which you did not know you wanted to learn.
