EdCamp Atlanta 2013 saw a 35% increase in attendance from our inaugural year! We increased sponsorship and door prizes as well as offered two "tracks" of sessions: a 50-minute block and a 25-minute block, almost tripling our offerings. We had attendees not just from Metro Atlanta, but from all over the state of Georgia and from Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and even from Boston.
Our second-annual event was a huge success! Read some of the reflective thoughts below to see why!
"I cant to EdCampATL to see what it was all about. Once here, I decided to share some information as well as sit in on other session. This un-conference has been an amazing experience. I have gotten so much info and ideas to go back and try out."
"I would like to be part of starting an EdCamp in my state, and I was so surprised at hoe different this one is from the one I went to last week in [a nearby state]. I now have even more food for thought. Thanks for having this!"
"I love the different session times!"
"The people attending EdCamp are a special breed. These are people inspired to use the latest tools to help students succeed in a collaborative atmosphere."

"Wonderful presenters, great info, good location, will attend next year!"
"Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! Apps session (60 in 50) was very helpful as a model to replicate back at my school."
