As the school year gets close to an end, Burlington is just getting started with events for educators. Burlington Public Schools and the BPS EdTech Team will be hosting several free events this spring and summer. Join us for great conversations about education and technology. We will provide professional development sessions and time to collaborate with educators from across the country. Our goal is to break down the isolation in education and help teachers work with each other to create powerful learning resources.
Saturday, June 1
EdCampxEDU is Burlington’s first student organized and lead Edcamp event. Burlington students have been planning the event which will feature conversations about education and technology. Edcamps are an incredible response to poor educational professional development. Edcamps provide educators with the opportunity to learn from each other in comfortable environments using conversations and sharing of ideas.
EdCampxEDU is a free event but registration is required. Please see the event site for more details.
Third Annual Massachusetts Digital Publication Collaborative
Wednesday, June 26 – Friday, June 28
MADPC is our annual digital curriculum event. The BPS EdTech team helps provide a starting point for the curation of digital resources and materials. Through PD sessions and collaborative time for common curriculum area teachers, participants are able to develop ideas, lessons, and courses for digital classes and 1:1 environments. This event is great for anyone who uses technology in the classroom or wants to learn about how to better integrate technology.
Please note – participants do not need to attend all three days. Please attend for as much time as you can. Due to the extra snow days for many school districts this year we will feature similar PD sessions each day so that you don’t miss some of the opportunities.
The event is free but registration is required. Please visit the event site for more details.
