The Los Angeles County Office of Education, Instructional Technology Outreach division of Technology Services is sponsoring an Edtech EdCamp, a fast-paced opportunity for sharing and networking.

Everyone is welcome to propose and lead a session where conversation and collaboration are paramount. The day is completely participant-driven.
This Edcamp will begin with a Smackdown when people volunteer to share a tech tool, teaching tip, lesson plan, or anything else they'd like to share with the group about dynamic teaching and learning with technology. Come prepared to give a quick 1-2 minute pitch, share any pertinent information (URL's, titles, etc), and then it is added to a shared document that you can reference later. You'll leave with a ton of information and great tips whether you are a newbie or a digital educator.
