Harrisburg University of Science and Technology will host EdCamp
Harrisburg on Saturday, November 12, 2011.

Harrisburg, PA, July 12, 2011 - Harrisburg University of Science and
Technology will host EdCamp Harrisburg on Saturday, November 12,
2011. The free day-long event will be filled with open, participatory
events, discussions, and workshops where presentation content is
provided by the participants rather than chosen speakers.

Entry is limited to the first 200 signups. The concept is simple. EdCamps
are not your typical education conference. EdCamps are run by local
teachers who want to informally spark discussion and learn new ideas
from one another. There are so many benefits to attending: free
admission, meet other teachers in your area, network, a flexible agenda,
and so much more!

This unconference is for all involved in education: teachers, students,
parents, professors, administrators and all who have a passion for
education in today’s world.
