PBS KIDS Edcamps

PBS KIDS Edcamps

Picture this: a room, filled with people just like you, who love children but also understand the real life challenges of caring for them. Now imagine that in this room each of you has the opportunity to choose what to talk about, to explore what you want to learn about, and to share your best ideas with each other. That’s right: it’s time to re-imagine professional learning with an experience that is tailor made for you—PBS KIDS Edcamp.

At PBS KIDS Edcamp, you and others just like you decide what’s important enough to discuss.  You are the expert and the learner, and as a participant, a whole new community of friends—who have had work experiences just like yours—instantly becomes your personal network.

This professional learning event is FREE for all early childhood educators and caregivers who would like to attend. We will provide the virtual space and resources to help you explore and share ideas about the learning topics that are most important to you and your fellow educators.

Past PBS KIDS Edcamps

Since 2016, we’ve hosted several amazing PBS KIDS Edcamps, many of which were made possible by our friends at the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend. From hosting pre-school and early educators to K-12 administrators to taking over the Early Learning Coalition’s annual conference and turning the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center into a PBS KIDS – themed Edcamp playground, each Edcamp has been different but equally as impactful as the next.

In 2021, we’re bringing our PBS KIDS Edcamp experience to the virtual stage – and we hope you’ll join us for what’s sure to be a day chock-full of meaningful discussions and discoveries!
