Our CLC is hosting a TeachMeet on the 11th November, starting at 5.30pm. A TeachMeet is an informal conference for teachers, by teachers. Anyone who attends is welcome to give a presentation, relating to the use of technology in the classroom or for CPD. These presentations can be 2 minute nano presentations, or 7 minute micro presentations. This means that the evening moves at a good pace and planning a presentation isn’t too onerous. Above all the experience is supposed to be fun as well as informative.
This TeachMeet has an NQT focus, with the aim of inspiring newly qualified teachers (and trainee teachers) in the use of ICT and providing them with resources and ideas for use in their own practice. However all teachers and educationalists are welcome to attend, whether from the Primary, Secondary, Further of Special sector. The evening also provides the opportunity to network and socialise with other teachers, and consume free food and drink!
Currently there are presentations on the following subjects:
- Joining a global staffroom for support and inspiration: Building your PLN
- Putting the Interactive into IWBs
- Using video in the music classroom
- Multimedia Extravaganza in Y6
- Using Microsoft Mouse Mischief to make PowerPoint presentations interactive – and fun
- Organising your classroom for learning
If you are interested in attending/presenting you can sign up at www.teachmeet.org.uk (scroll down to find the Sheffield logo), or e-mail me, Catherine Elliott, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
