Flocabulary - It's the EdCamp

"I have paid big money for conferences that were not nearly as good as #EdCampKC."- Andy King

Specifically talking about EdCamps, from this Edutopia article about DIY in education by Betty Ray:
"Again, something shifts when a group of motivated people get in the same room and direct their own experience: They share what’s working and what isn’t. They support each other. It’s both inspirational and incredibly practical. Anyone can ask for help and support – whether you’re looking for ideas for teaching the Civil War to middle schoolers, or resources to help make the case for allowing social media in the classroom."
