The Edcamp Foundation is delighted to announce its first sponsor since acquiring official 501(c)(3) status: Remind 101.
Remind 101 is a tool for educators to use to remind students and parents about important assignment or events.
Along with their generous gift of $2,500 Remind 101 will also be creating an Edcamp Page (coming soon!) You can sign up for fun facts and other reminders about important Edcamp events. So, join our group and stay up to date on the latest Edcamp Foundation events!
Thanks to the entire team at Remind 101, including Brett and Christine. They’ve been huge Edcamp supporters for all of our events across the nation.

Symbols are powerful things and the Flaming Apple of Edcamp is no exception. Our logo was designed by one of my former students, Lorenzo Ibarra. Even at first glance, Lorenzo’s design is a brilliant twist on the barcamp flame. It gives a nod to Edcamp’s roots in that movement as well capturing the burning passion of Edcampers for education.

The rise of Edcamps over the past few years has led many to wonder about how this model aligns with the tenets of effective professional development. Well, the Edcamp Foundation has put together a brief research report that begins to qualitatively analyze the Edcamp Phenomenon.
Have you ever wondered how all these awesome edcamps actually came to be?
Have you ever wanted a place to ask questions, before you even got started?
Maybe you’d like to plan one of your own – but don’t know where to begin (or, if an Edcamp is already being planned in your area).
Sure, the edcamp wiki is helpful, but, let’s face it … you need answers. RIGHT NOW.
