An edcamp is an open meeting involving people interested in education in order to share learnings, knowledge, interests and passions. The movement was born in Philadelphia, USA, in 2010 and has spread worldwide. It has also come to Catalonia and there are scheduled meetings in the coming months.
In an edcamp there is not a program defined by the organization and are the participants who together built the program on the topics that are of their interest. Meetings are free and driven primarily by educators, responding to the principle that the peer learning is one of the most valuable resources to grow and develop professionally and personally.
In Catalonia, the movement has come from the hand of the Jaume Bofill Foundation, in partnership with the Edcamp Foundation, and now has a team behind. The months of November and December 2016 took place the first edcamps in Catalonia and now there are more scheduled:
- 01/21/2017: Montcada i Reixac
- 02/01/2017: Tarragona
- 02/18/2017: Badalona
- 03/11/2017: Tordera
- 03/17/2017: Sant Andreu (Barcelona)
You will find all the information about the meetings and the movement in general on the website of edcamp.
