We are excited to announce that for 2014, Edcamp Fort Wayne is working on a partnership in development with IPFW! This partnership will bring many great possibilities to both EdcampFW and the educators of northeast Indiana. EdcampFW is working on a new amazing location: you guessed it, IPFW’s beautiful campus! As of right now, we are working on more details, but stay tuned as there is more info to come in the near future!
Check out IPFW’s Division of Continuing Studies for many great opportunities for K-12 teachers alike. We are excited at what this potential partnership will bring and you should be too!
Hello everybody! We again want to thank everyone that attended, helped plan, and sponsored Edcamp Fort Wayne 2013!

Such a big thank you to everyone that had a hand in making Saturday such an amazing event! Although we were small in numbers, the inaugural Edcamp Fort Wayne was one of the most diverse groups of educators I have seen together in one place. High school teachers, administrators, elementary teachers, students, media specialists, psychologists, and community members alike all gathered at New Tech Academy to share. Here are a few things to remember for the future:
- Please complete the feedback survey if you haven’t already! We want to know what we can do to make your experience even greater next time!
- Be looking for an e-mail with your PGP certificate in the next couple weeks.
- Share with at least one co-worker your experience at Edcamp Fort Wayne!
- Stay tuned, as the Edcamp Fort Wayne team is already talking about what we can do to reach more in Northeast Indiana!
Teacher Tonya Boynton and her son Brandon came all the way from Pendleton for the day. Check out their story and the story of all of the other educators that took part in Edcamp Fort Wayne with this great recap piece by Sherry Slater of the Journal Gazette.
Again, we cannot thank everyone enough and we hope that you enjoyed your experience and we can continue to reach more educators as we growth in the future!
Edcamp Fort Wayne is only a couple of days away and we are excited for what Saturday brings! As the day approaches, there are a couple things to think about and what you need to bring:
A computer or tablet (we will have wi-fi).
A friend. No one should come alone!
Money for lunch (we will have a map of local restaurants)
Ideas for sessions.
An open-mind and willingness to share.
See you on Saturday Edcampers!
