The dress code is casual. Whatever you want to wear to be comfortable. A shirt with a logo of your favorite tech tool can be a great conversation starter. If bow ties give you confidence, go for it. There is also a fair amount of walking, so wear comfy shoes!
You will walk away with many ideas, so be prepared to record them either with a device or on paper. Sessions do not have to be about technology, but many times they will be, so bring a device so you can play along with everyone else. Wi-Fi will be available in all rooms. Instead of using projectors to share information with other people (and to resist the urge to present with a PowerPoint or such), there are Google Docs linked on the schedule so everyone can share information/resources that way.
Edcampers are encouraged to prepare at their own comfort level. Some edcampers come without doing any prep work; some come with an idea of what they want to discus. Others prepare more formally. If you do prepare to present a session, make sure it will last no more than 20 minutes so as to allow time to facilitate a discussion on your topic. Edcamp is about conversations, not fancy presentations. You don’t have to lead a session, but we do encourage you to share your voice, share your passions, share your best practices as well as your dilemmas, and concerns.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Nothing! Like all EdCamps, EdCamp DV-IS is free. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we are to provide complimentary breakfast for all participants. Details will be shared closer to the event.
