EduCampWelly17 - #WellyEd Conference at Raroa

Raroa intermediate was the ideal setting for this years EducampWelly17 (I am a bit biased as the AP there.) The Learning Street provided inspiration and prompted questions and conversation on the changing landscape of learning and learning environments.

EducampWelly is a spin off from the #wellyed network. A network of passionate educators. Created by Philippa Antipas @AKeenReader and has now grown to form an exciting group of connected teachers and educational professionals. EducampWelly17 attracted teachers and educators from Wellington, other parts of NZ and a few attendees from overseas.

After introductions, The day was kicked off with 'The Smack Down' - Each person gets one slide & 1 min. This was an opportunity to hear a range of ideas, thoughts and pitches. Quick, fun and thoughtful.

This was followed by the shaping of discussions and workshops based on participants interests. Tours of the school ran throughout the day providing opportunities for participants to ask questions and look around a range of innovative learning environments.

The day was a buzz with conversation, accompanied by coffee, baking and to end the day pizza and drinks put on my N4L

Here is a link to a reflection from one of the teachers that attended the conference.
