I am the founder, along with Brian Friedlander, of EdcampAccessNJ.
EdCampAccess NJ is an unconference devoted to K -12 special education issues and ideas with a focus on reaching all struggling learners. It is not limited to special educators.
The inaugural conference was held on March 8, 2014 at the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown NJ.
The EdcampAccess idea has gone global! In conjunction with the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) International Conference, EdcampAccess International was created to promote sharing of ideas related to AT.
Starting at the 2015 ATIA conference, EdcampAccess International introduced the Edcamp concept into the framework of a traditional conference experience. Taking place at the conclusion of the ATIA conference, attendees were able to discuss what they had learned and how they might apply this information in their service setting.
For 2016, we are changing things again and introducing EdcampAccess International After Dark! An Edcamp event happening at night, during the ATIA conference. Our hope it to engage even more learners and expand this learning community.
