Chromecamp - MO

Liberty High School (map)

Chromecamp is an “unconference,” a free, non-commercial gathering of passionate educators who share an interest in a particular topic – in this case, the Chrome (the browser and OS) and the entire Google Ecosystem. Attendees volunteer to run sessions – conversations, not presentations – on specific topics related to this theme (or not – sessions can also be about social media or other educational concepts, but the emphasis is on Chrome and Google.)

Description

Three schools are going to pitch their problem to the room. Using a consultancy protocol the room will pitch solutions to clarify and provide solutions. This upbeat, fun, engaging format relies on the expertise of a cross-section of our community. Not in education, you're perfect to help us solve problems! Join us!

What is a Consultancy Protocol?

The structure of the Consultancy helps presenters think more expansively about a particular, concrete dilemma. The Consultancy protocol has 2 main purposes – to develop participants’ capacity to see and describe the dilemmas that are the essential material of their work, and to help each other understand and deal with them.

An "UNconference" devoted to all things STEAM in K-12 education.


Breakout sessions focused on implementing Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics into every grade level and multiple subjects for all learners. 

Participants will walk away with several strategies to implement and integrate STEAM into all forms of curriculum. They will also be able to build a network of STEAM educators to share experiences and newly discovered lessons and connections.

What is an UNconference?

An unconference is basically a conference without predefined topics. There is a high-level structure and theme, but actual topics are generated by the participants on the spot, and breakout groups are formed dynamically based on interest and relevance.

An unconference is basically a conference without predefined topics.

Forget all the pre-planning and boring powerpoints, connect, share, collaborate and learn together.
