What is Edcamp? Check out http://edcamp.org/

"An edcamp is a user-generated conference - commonly referred to as an "unconference". Edcamps are designed to provide participant-driven professional development for K-12 educators... Educational technology is a common topic area for edcamps, as are pedagogy, practical examples in instructional use of modern tools, and solving the problems technology can introduce into the classroom environment.
Edcamps are generally free or very low-cost, built around ad-hoc community participation. Sessions are not planned until the day of the event, when participants can volunteer to give a presentation on a topic of their choice. Edcamps operate "without keynote speakers or vendor booths, encourage participants to find or lead a conversation that meet their needs and interests." -- Wikipedia
