What is EdCamp Bemidji?
Simply, it is a free conference for teachers, administrators, pre-service teachers - actually anyone who is interested in making education better. What makes edcamp unique is that there are no paid speakers or presenters, in fact you are considered the expert. Attendees can choose to present, learn, or both! The schedule will be built during the morning opening session.
What should I bring?
1. A laptop or tablet, is helpful. There will be Wi-Fi available.
2. A mind, that is open and ready to learn.
3. A friend or two, or three.
What will be covered?
Since the schedule is built the day of we really do not know. Here is what we do know, we will provide a blank schedule and you will complete it with a range of topics ranging from best practices to technology integration.
What about Breakfast/Lunch?
Concordia Language Village is donating a fabulous lunch! We are working on a breakfast donation. We will keep attendees updated as we learn more.
Do I have to be from Bemidji to attend?
No! This event is open to anyone and everyone. If you are traveling a distance, check out our accommodations page on our website.
One of the things that makes our Edcamp unique is our partnership with Concordia Language Village. They have donated lunch for the past four years! We are pleased to announce that this year's lunch is being donated by Sjolunden, the Swedish Village!
Another long time Edcamp Bemidji sponsor is Bemidji State University, who will once again host our event. For the second year, Edcamp Bemidji will be located in the state-of-the-art Memorial Hall on BSU's Campus.
New attendees will receive a special gift!
