« Wrongful Convictions and Executions: East & West | Main | Osaka JALT TechDayPlus 2018: a one-day mini-conference on tech and other topics »

Edcamp Kansai Encore, at Uchida Yoko Co., LTD., Osaka branch

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

Osaka JALT is proud to co-sponsor Edcamp Kansai Encore 2018 (the second Edcamp event in Kansai of the year), held again at the beautiful facilities of Uchida Yoko Co., LTD., three blocks west and two blocks south of Tanimachiyonchome metro station, Exit 8. Admission is free for everyone, but please register to help the organizers.

Edcamp is a form of "unconference" designed specifically for teachers and their needs. What makes Edcamp an unconference? Unlike traditional conferences which have schedules set days, weeks, or months in advance by the people running the conference, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. Sponsors don’t have their own special sessions or tables, all of the space and time are reserved for the things the people there want to talk about. Built on principles of connected and participatory learning, Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions, and questions. Teachers who attend Edcamp can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions.


  • The event begins at 10:00 with short welcoming comments, reminders, and building of the session board. Please bring your ideas! 10時から開会式を行います。この時にスケジュールの内容を作ります。アイディアを持ってきてください。

  • Here is a map to the event venue Uchida Yoko. 会場への地図です。

  • Registration is still open, so please feel free to invite your colleagues or others interested. 登録はまだできますので、是非同僚を招待してください。当日参加も歓迎します。

  • Please bring a device (and charger) or something to take notes with. We will not have paper on hand. デバイスとバッテリーを持ってきてください。紙やメモ用紙は会場にはありません。

  • Consider doing a demo slam at the end of the day. We’ll have some small prizes for the top three slams. Do you know a cool app or website? Got a great teaching idea, strategy or model? Please share it with us! 何より大事なのは「アイデア」!イベントの最後にはプレゼンの時間があります。Edcamp関西で学んだことは?お気に入りのアプリやサイトは?学びのモデルは?ぜひ発表してくださいね!

  • There will be tea, coffee, and simple snacks provided, but lunch will not be provided. There are restaurants in the area but Uchida Yoko has kindly provided a microwave and small refrigerator for those who choose to bring a bento. Drink can be consumed in the main hall, but all food must be eaten in the cafeteria on the 5th floor. There is no water fountain on site, but there are vending machines. 昼食は出ませんが、近くにカフェやレストラン、コンビニもあります。内田洋行の会場には電子レンジはあります。ミーティングルームと広場では食べ物は禁止なので、会場の5階にあるカフェテリアで食べて下さい。飲み物を購入できる自動販売機があります。

  • We will have garbage bags on hand, but it will be helpful it you can take away your own trash (many thanks!). ゴミ箱は用意しますが可能であれば自分のゴミの持ち帰りください。

  • To continue networking (yes, it’s okay for teachers to network - bring your business cards!) we will have an after party from 5pm. The venue is still to be announced but likely at a pub in Shinsaibashi, a couple of subway stops from the event venue (suggestions are still welcome). Edcamp関西 アフターパーティーは午後5時から行いますが当日お知らせします。まずは心斎橋の周辺で集まります。

  • We like to be relaxed, so there is no dress code. ドレスコードはありませんのでカジュアルな服装にしてください。
