Digital Web Magazine - Understanding the Unconference

Digital Web Magazine - Understanding the Unconference | UnConference: The Conference That's Not A Conference | Scoop.it

Unconferences are gaining popularity in the high-tech community as self-organizing forums for idea sharing, networking, learning, speaking, demonstrating, and generally interacting with other geeks. The unconference format is based on the premise that in any professional gathering, the people in the audience—not just those selected to speak on stage—have interesting thoughts, insights, and expertise to share. Everyone who attends an unconference, such as those put together by organizations like BarCamp or BrainJams, is required to participate in some way: to present, to speak on a panel, to show off a project, or just to ask a lot of questions.

 

As an event, the character of the unconference falls somewhere between that of a bazaar and that of an intellectual salon. It is, to borrow a phrase, a free “marketplace of ideas.”

 

There are no themes or tracks to guide you, as in a typical conference; the whole event is centered on what might be called the discussion group. The ad hoc nature and the low cost of this forum (they’re usually free, compared to the hundreds of dollars needed to attend some industry gatherings) make the unconference accessible to many.  "Digital Web Magazine - Understanding the Unconference...

Ministry of Education, Singapore: Teaching as a Career

Ministry of Education, Singapore: Teaching as a Career | UnConference: The Conference That's Not A Conference | Scoop.it

Some jobs are merely those: jobs. They require you to drag yourself up from bed every morning and then to drag yourself off to another dull day of work, where you deal with task after dreary task. In exchange for undergoing this daily routine that leaves you drained of your energy every time, you get to make a steady income and to lead a stable, secure life.

In the teaching force, we make far more than just money. Every day, we make children excited with the wonders of science and the majesty of mathematics, and make them fall madly in love with the beauty of the arts and the humanities. Every day, we make our schools the place where students can discover their talents, and aspire to greater heights.

Every day, we make our students believe in themselves.

NEA - NEA Home

NEA - NEA Home | UnConference: The Conference That's Not A Conference | Scoop.it

The National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States. In 1857, one hundred educators answered a national call to unite as one voice in the cause of public education. At the time, learning to read and write was a luxury for most children—and a crime for many Black children. One hundred and fifty years later, public education and the profession of teaching are transformed. In 1966 we joined forces with the American Teachers Association. Since then, our voice has swelled to 3.2 million members, and what was once a privilege for a fortunate few is now an essential right for every American child, regardless of family income or place of residence. http://www.nea.org/home/1704.htm

How are you involved in education?

 

I have been teaching for 5 years in Philadelphia. The first three years of my professional career I spent at Morrison Elementary teaching science and social studies (along with music, technology, literacy, and math) to seventh and eighth graders. This is my second year at Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Charter School as a science teacher and science department chair.
My students have opportunities to engage with STEM professionals in a monthly science speaker series, travel on monthly field trips to research labs, pursue independent research that can be showcased at science fairs, participate in weekend and summer programs with various educational institutions and partners, and engage in learning that is authentic and hands-on. Students also have opportunities to join our US FIRST Tech Challenge team and a chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers.
