What is #stucamp?
#stucamp is a time for students to come together and give voice to their opinions, beliefs, and hopes for their education. #stucamp is the opportunity for those most affected by education to be heard.
Thank you to all who atttended #StuCamp this year. We are already planning for next year. Join us!

How is #stucamp going to work?
- Well, #stucamp will function just like an EdCamp does, but the topics discussed will be those which are important to our students.
- We do ask that teachers attend #stucamp with their students. The role of the teachers will be to listen, observe, and learn. They can contribute to the conversation, but teachers taking over conversations will be treated the same way as those who bring Power Points to EdCamp. Avoid at all costs.
- #stucamp is meant to connect students. Think about your personal learning network; #stucamp could be a time for students to begin to develop student learning networks. What if students were having this educational conversations and connections like we do? Could it make the grassroots-ed-reform-at-the-classroom-level possible?
- For #stucamp to work, we need to educate our students. We need to prepare them to think in ways they haven’t thought before. They have been programmed to be educated. We now need to showcase their voice in learning. We will provide resources to help teachers begin this conversation.
