LPB | Edcamp Statewide Partnership

Edcamps build and support communities of empowered educators through peer-led, participant-driven professional learning, and are free to attendees, ensuring that all local educators have access to them. LPB’s goal is to support Edcamps around the state so educators can connect with one another to spark innovation in the classroom. This partnership will help Edcamps in Louisiana bring educators together to transform teaching in learning, especially early childhood educators. LPB recognizes the need for strong peer-to-peer teacher networks and looks forward to bringing the Edcamp model to communities in Louisiana.

Edcamp Lafayette will be held on February 9 at Saints Peter & Paul Catholic School in Scott, LA. Register here.

ShopLPB Feature of the Week: Alive! In America's Delta: Life on the Edge DVD

One of the most ecologically diverse regions on the planet, Louisiana is home to over 600 species of rare plants and animals and about 40% of the nation’s coastal wetlands in the lower 48 states. With a rich diversity of habitats from upland forests to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and everything in-between, including longleaf pine forests, cypress swamps, prairies, freshwater marsh, and sandy beaches, this region provides homes for an abundance of migratory and year-round wildlife and reptiles. 

Alive! In America's Delta: Life on the Edge invites you to meet a few of the many relatively unknown creatures struggling for survival like the Louisiana pine snake and the gopher tortoise, and get to know the people behind the scenes working tirelessly to save them. 

Be sure to browse all of the DVDs, digital downloads, books, t-shirts, and more available at ShopLPB. If you are a member of Friends, you can get a 15% discount on all ShopLPB purchases. Check Visions for the code for savings.
