Envisioning Education, a free-of-charge event sponsored by ACASE. 112 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs NY brought together educators from New England and New York state to share their visions about positive possibilities in education.

On Saturday, February 3, 2007, participants met at 112 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs, NY. Beginning at 9 am, attendees will self-organize the day’s schedule. Concurrent sessions began at 9:30am.

This “unconference” follows a format developed by the grassroots technology community to foster sharing and the rapid exchange of ideas. There was no pre-set agenda. Instead, once on-site, participants posted a short description (5-20 words) of the presentation they would give. The descriptions were posted on a board divided into times and rooms. The agenda emerged as participants discussed their interests and re-arranged the schedule as they saw fit.

ACASE provided the online organization space, the meeting place, and worked with local organizations and businesses to provide food and drink. This year Educamp coincided with the annual local Chowder-Fest.
