Visit Barcamp Ethiopia 2011 !

 

 

Official motto of Barcamp Ethiopia 2010:   

"NEW LEARNING | NEW THINKING | NEW BEHAVIOR"

 

Barcamp Ethiopia was held at EiABC (South-Campus of AAU, near Mexico Square) in Addis Ababa 17.-18. September (with a pre-party the evening before)

A Barcamp is a sort of "unconference" (BAR= "Beyond All Recognition"): It is organized and administered not by an institution or a company, but by an open community of interested individuals. It has no pre-structured program - everything is planned and coordinated through a web-based public Wiki (the page you are visiting right now) and other online tools where anyone can post ideas and participate actively through collaboration. So far, over 350 Barcamps have been held all over the world with different thematic focus, also in several other african countries, but until now, never before in Ethiopia.

The planning and preparation of Barcamp Ethiopia will be coordinated through this wiki-page and the "BarCamp Ethiopia" group in the NING-Platform "eLearning Ethiopia": http://elearningethiopia.ning.com/group/barcampethiopia
