A Message from Mike Marotta & Brian Friedlander, Organizers edcampAccessNJ:

Well it is finally here! Our conference is this Saturday, March 8th. We just wanted to check in and share a few items with you prior to the event.

Getting there
The conference is located at the College of St Elizabeth, Annunciation Center.

Driving Directions:

Campus Map:

We currently have almost 200 people registered! It is shaping up to be an amazing day of learning and sharing.

Please arrive early! Registration starts at 8:00

The session grid will be completed once we arrive on Saturday. Come prepared to share as well as learn.

  • Come with session ideas you would like to lead
  • Come with ideas of sessions you would like to attend.
Remember, the whole idea of an edcamp is the spontaneous sharing of ideas and strategies. Don’t feel pressure – Suggesting a topic does not mean you are an “Expert” in that topic. Instead, work to facilitate a group didscussion about that topic.

We will have four breakout sessions – each with 6 available rooms – for a total of 24 possible sessions for the day!

For you to follow along during the day:
Google Doc – Schedule at a Glance:
YAPP Mobile App:

If you plan on speaking or leading a session: Each room will be setup with a projector and screen.

PLEASE make sure to bring any adapter you will need to connect your device to the projection system.

Make sure to stay throughout the day. We will be drawing prizes at lunch and at the end of the day. We are very thankful to our sponsors for the increadible gifts. Check out the sponsor page of our website:

At the end of the day, we will host a Smackdown! For anyone new to these events, a Smackdown is an opportunity for anyone to come up and share an app/tool they use. This fast paced, audience driven sharing is a perfect way to end our day together!

Thanks for all your support! We are so excited to meet everyone on Saturday.

See you Saturday,

Mike and Brian
