Why we're excited for the 3rd annual RemixEd Camp
RemixEd is a free unconference for educators, administrators, and education researchers that takes place in Montreal, Quebec. This year the event will be taking place on September 30th at the John Molson School of Business Building on the Concordia University campus.
RemixEd combines the best aspects of an edcamp and a traditional conference, blending learning, sharing, and connecting for an awesome day of fun! In addition, to the usual crowdsourced edcamp program, RemixEd is a unique model that also offers a pre-set program of traditional workshop sessions provided by members of the community. This way folks can enjoy workshops and learn practical skills and join share and listen in open, roundtable conversations edcamp-style. All in all, it's a day designed for educators.
What's new this year?
This year, planned sessions will be taking place in English and in French. "Our goal is to bring the two solitudes together to talk about topics in education that matter to us all", Roxanne explains. "There are so many amazing educators, doing really cool things in their classrooms and we need a space to share and learn from each other", she elaborates. Roxanne, Chris Colley (LEARN), Kish Gué (English Montreal School board), and Pierre Poulin (iClasse) are the organizers excited to be taking this event to the next level.
How Pure & Applied is Involved
This year, Roxanne and Niki from Pure & Applied will be volunteering throughout the day, setting up and hanging out with the kids. One important feature the organizing team decided on in the very beginning is that RemixEd needed to have childcare so that parents could attend knowing that their kids are in good hands and having fun, too. This year kids have guided activities and they will get to hang out in the makerspace on site, hosted by LEARN.
The team is thrilled to be able to offer educators and their families a day of fun, learning, and connecting.
