EduCamp NYC is a gathering born from the desire by teachers,
researchers, and technology specialists in K-12 education to share and
learn in an open and powerfully-networked environment. All workshops
are scheduled the day they happen, and are lead by conference
attendees. Attendees are strongly encouraged to give a demo, run a
session, lead a discussion, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer /
contribute in some way to support the event. The people present at
the event will select the workshops they want to attend. Pre-event
planning will take place using the barcamp wiki. The event will be run
using Open Space Technology. Conference notes and post-conference
teamwork will take place using the curriculum collaboration tool,
