Professional development (PD) is prescribed by someone else, planned by someone else, and measured by someone else. Wouldn’t it be great to take control of that learning? I know you’re thinking, “I get to go to conferences.” Right, but other people get to decide what’s offered and when it’s offered. This limits your choices and leaves out the interests of many. Edcamps are a new way to think about professional development and professional learning. Use this book to learn about and start your own Edcamp!
