Cat’s out of the bag: after a super productive Google Chat with the organizing team yesterday morning, O’Connell High School has officially partnered with the good folks from Edcamp NoVa (Northern Virginia) and we’ll be bringing this year’s event to you LIVE from Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va., on May the Fourth, 2019.

And registration is now live.

We’re planning an epic day of teacher PD that will bring “THE FORCE” of next generation learning into classrooms from grades K-12, and we’re hard at work putting together the finishing touches on a full schedule of events designed for a guest list of up to 200 (!!!) of your closest teacher pals.

“Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy…”

Stay close. And register today to come join the party!
