The Lawrence County EdCamp committee was excited to host the 2nd annual Lawrence County EdCamp on Friday, February 15, 2019. The camp was hosted at three different venues this year. Teachers in grades K-2 met at Lockley Early Learning Center, teachers in grades 3-6 met at Union, and teachers in grades 7-12 met at Neshannock Jr./Sr. High School. Each venue offered sessions tailored to each group.
Sessions at EdCamp are participant-driven, encourage sharing and collaborating among everyone who comes to the session, whether it is a small group or a large group. Teachers share their best practices, their challenges and their passions. Each participant is listening for key information to personalize his/her professional learning experience. There is no single expert in the room! One person facilitates the session with no formal presentations or presenters. Participants are empowered to have voice and choice at EdCamp. They are encouraged to subscribe to the “Rule of Two Feet,” staying for sessions that meet their needs and politely leaving ones that do not.
At the Lawrence County EdCamp this year, teachers were provided opportunities to collaborate with fellow educators. Local businesses provided monetary sponsorship to EdCamp which helped to secure prizes provided at the end of the day. Each venue gave away five $100 Amazon gift cards to some lucky winners.
Neshannock Township School District was honored to host Lawrence County’s junior and senior high educators, and thrilled for our teachers to have the opportunity to collaborate with their fellow educators.
