Edcamp Foundation

In 2014, the Edcamp Foundation was formed to support the edcamp movement by providing educators with resources and encouragement to integrate new ideas into the classroom.

Mission Statement

Edcamp Foundation builds and supports communities of empowered educators.

Founded in 2010, the Edcamp Foundation enables educators across the globe in their efforts to learn from and support one another. Edcamp events bring together teachers and administrators and promotes learning through an organic, participant-driven experience where educators drive the agenda of their own learning, providing an alternative to traditional professional development.
