The 6th annual EdCampRI is swiftly approaching! Join a dynamic group of educators at Alger Hall on Rhode Island College’s campus on Saturday, May 5 from 8:00AM-1:30PM for a great day of learning and sharing. All are welcome to be a part of the conversation, whether you’re an EdCamp veteran or newbie.
EdCampRI is brought to you by a planning committee made up of representatives from Rhode Island College, school districts across our state, Highlander Institute, and the Tortolani family.
This year’s EdCampRI event is bittersweet, to say the least. Last year, Alan Tortolani, the founder of ABCYa and co-founder of EdCampRI passed away unexpectedly. He was passionate about the power of teachers in the Ocean State and truly loved EdCampRI and its ability to bring educators together. In honor of Alan, we are announcing the Alan Tortolani Scholarship for Teachers to recognize an incredible Rhode Island educator, with plans to make this an annual tradition.
The winner of this award will receive a scholarship to attend the ISTE Conference in Chicago in June 2018. The scholarship includes conference registration, hotel, and flight.
Please apply for this tremendous opportunity and share this link with other educators who might be interested. We will announce the winner at EdCampRI 2018 on Saturday, May 5. We think continuing to support and champion teacher leaders is one of the best ways to honor Alan.
