EducampNZ 2010
EducampNZ 2010 was held on 24th July 2010. Follow links below to explore resources, activities and discussions. We would also appreciate your suggestions and feedback to assist the organisation of future un-conference events. We are excited that educators in other regions are exploring the possibilities of running similar events and your recommendations would be valued. Feedback can be posted on this wiki. Thanks.
EducampNZ is a user-generated 'unconference' focussed on e-learning and education, and we're all about growing your learning, networking, and of course having fun! Read more below...
EducampNZ is based on a user-generated 'unconference' or Barcamp. The focus is on e-learning and education, sharing ideas we've discovered and learning from each other. Everyone is invited to participate in some way...

How can I participate?
Click here for ideas on how you might participate.
The day will kick-off with a 'speed-geeking session' to get to know a few people. This will be followed by an e-Learning 'Smackdown' - a smorgasbord of fantastic ideas and resources contributed by attendees. Then we will break out into interest groups for the rest of the day.

The purpose of EducampNZ is to both learn and contribute. It is based on the OpenSpace Meeting Format . No real agenda has been set and it will be up to you to determine the focus for the sessions, grow your learning, network and have fun!

Scroll down the page to check out who is coming and the potential topics for exploration and discussion.
