Thursday saw the very first TeachMeet hosted at the Discover the World offices. I’m a real fan of the smaller events and there was a real buzz of networking, with most delegates still there an hour after the final presentation started. It also brought home the importance of starting up new TeachMeets and not being too worried if fewer than 40 people turn up. We had presentations from those who had never shared before as well as many first timers.
I’ve created a Dropbox folder with the presentations here, most of which had an outdoor learning twist. There were quite a few presentations, like the one from Helen pictured above, that didn’t use technology.
A huge thanks to Dan, Helen and Megan at Discover the World Education for hosting – this is a company that really get teachers. There was no sales pitch, pizza and wine. Most important of all, I left with a raft of new contacts and ideas for using in my classroom and school.
Look out for future events!
