#ParentCamp South Jersey



Have you ever attended a ParentCamp?  Well, the first ParentCamp will be held at the William Davies Middle School in Mays Landing, New Jersey on November 15, 2014. If you are in South Jersey, I would highly recommend it!   

What is it?

ParentCamp is an un-conference where parents, teachers, students, and community members can come together and learn from one another about what is best for kids.  Traditional conferences vary from un-conferences in several ways. Parentcamp.org explains:

 

Traditional Conference

  • A speaker stands and delivers a presentation.
  • The audience participation is minimal.
  • The typical room setup is a presentation screen with the audience seated in rows facing the speaker.

 

Un-conference

  • The discussion leader sits among the group members to lead the discussion.
  • The expertise and experience “of the room” is harnessed from the start of the session.
  • Face-to-face perspective sharing leads to relationship-building, networking and a sense of “we’re all in this together.”

 

The un-conference setting allows all stakeholders to participate and learn from one another in a collaborative setting.
