#TheEdCollabGathering is a totally free, no registration, online conference day intended for educators who serve K-12 students. Our particular focus is on literacy, however sessions often reach the broad spectrum of literacy learning and support including writing workshop, reading workshop, education technology, social justice, content area literacy, family engagement, and more. The conference is great for classroom teachers, aides, coaches, building and district leaders and education advocates.
The sessions for #TheEdCollabGathering are presented live, at two online conference days each year, and then archived. First on this event site and then many are placed on our YouTube.com/TheEdCollab page for future viewing.
#TheEdCollabGathering and the Gathering.TheEducatorCollaborative.com website is owned and operated by The Educator Collaborative, LLC.
