In 2007, Jeff Lindsay and Jeff Shrager combined forces to hold the first EduCamp at Stanford University. It attracted a moderate crowd and generated a lot of passion and interested around alternative education and theory around education. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been another EduCamp since from the same group.
This blog and its few posts are probably the lasting mark of the event that will live on. Jeff Lindsay started posting about education to help raise interest in EduCamp and to help sustain interest and discussion between events. Unfortunately, another event didn’t happen and the blog soon became inactive.
Fast forward to 2010. While there aren’t yet plans for another EduCamp, Jeff Lindsay has started blogging again about education on a blog that is broader in topic called Thought Exploratorium. It’s even posted back to these posts to resurrect them in front of a new audience.
