I attended my first Teachmeet last week in Bradford. It was brilliant. For those of you who have never heard of a Teachmeet and don’t know what they are about then you may want to check out their website http://www.teachmeet.org.uk/ It is basically an informal gathering of teachers who give short presentations to share good practice. We had beers and curry in Bradford which was wonderful and the people there were great.
I learnt loads about how teachers have been using devices such as the iPod touch, Nintendo DS, Guitar Heros in schools. Technology really has so much to offer in terms of helping children learn but it is all about how we use it that makes the difference.
If you work in education then I recommend going to a Teachmeet near you. If you go to the next Bradford one then you’ll probably get free curry! I am hoping to do a presentation at the next one (scary)!
