PadCampBOP is part of EduCampNZ
"EducampNZ is a user-generated 'unconference' focused on e-learning and education.We're all about growing our learning, networking, and, of course, having fun! Everyone is invited to participate in some way..."

What is a Barcamp? Tell me about OpenSpace Meeting Format

The participants influence the agenda. The day will kick-off with a 'speed-geeking session' to get to know a few people.
This will be followed by an iPad 'Smackdown' - a smorgasbord of fantastic ideas and resources contributed by attendees.

Then we will break out into interest groups for the rest of the day.
