Chromecamp 2016 is about two weeks away! See you on July 22nd!

NOTE: THE UPDATE BELOW WAS JUST EMAILED TO ALL CURRENT REGISTRANTS. WE FORGOT TO ADD THAT WE WILL ONCE AGAIN PROVIDE PARTICIPANTS WITH PERSONALIZED PD CERTIFICATES OF ATTENDANCE – DETAILS WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE EVENT. THANK YOU!

Hi everyone,

Can’t wait to see you all at Belhaven Middle School on Friday, July 22nd, for the second annual Chromecamp, an Edcamp (unconference) devoted to everything Google – the entire Google Ecosystem in K-12 education. Here are a few bits of hopefully helpful info:

We’re almost full! We have about 300 people registered as of this morning, which is our limit. If you cannot make it, please let us know so we can release your ticket to someone else. We will start issuing ‘waiting list’ tickets (up to 50) once we’ve passed 300 registrants.

Parking: we’ve created a map on the “Where and When” page of our website showing available parking areas. Several additional lots are available at Mainland Regional HS, 1301 Oak Avenue, Linwood, just around the corner from Belhaven.

Food: thanks to our sponsors, we will once again be providing free breakfast (muffins, fruit, coffee) and lunch (pizza). We threw away a lot of uneaten breakfast items last year! 🙁 If you’re looking for something more substantial, for either meal, there are a variety of options in the area including WaWa’s, fast food, and nearby Central Square.

BYOD / WiFi: just a reminder that Chromecamp is a BYOD event.  All participants will be able to connect to our wifi using their own device (PC, MAC or Chromebook).  All devices will work in the Google ecosystem! Last year we had a short period of issues with wifi in the cafeteria.  This will be accounted for this year with the addition of some extra access points. We unfortunately will not have Chromebooks available for loan this year. Sorry about that!

Schedule: registration officially begins at 8:30 (doors open at 8:00). The session board will start filling up the moment people arrive so if you’d like to lead one, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible! We will have three sessions and finish up by 2:30 pm so you can enjoy the rest of the day.

Keep an eye on the website, http://www.chromecamp.net/, for late-breaking news and information!

Respectfully,

The Chromecamp Organizing Team
