What is Teachmeet?

TeachMeet is a chance for us to share what has and is effective, exciting and innovative technology in our schools in an informal environment.

Those of us who have attended a TeachMeet before have found them to be inspirational and a great form of CPD.

You may want to look at previous TeachMeets including:

·         TeachMeet BETT 2009

·         TeachMeet NE London – @ Redbridge 2008

Also, read Anthony Evan's blogpost http://redbridgeprimaryit.blogspot.com/ 

If you come for the evening, then you can either present (see below), or just listen to inspiring presentations on ICT in schools.


How to get to the London Borough of Havering Learning and Development Centre at CEME

Click to open a map - which includes public transport links

We hope that there will also be a online broadcast of the event via Flashmeeting. If you are interested in organising this please email dsmith.havering@lgfl.net

  • You will not be expected to sit through long presentations.
  • We invite anyone to contribute their experiences with technology in their schools through means of micropresentation (seven minutes long) or a nano presentation (two minutes long).


Who can come?

Anyone involved in education. You do not have to be a consultant, adviser or coordinator, in fact we'd love to hear from those that are actually doing it in the schools and classrooms. This event is for both primary and secondary.  

What can you do?

You can come along to loiter, contribute, chat, meet new people, or give a talk.

Rules for Talks

·         Please make sure that what you're showing has actually been done in your classroom/school or a classroom/school of a colleague - this isn't blue skies, this is right here, right now, real ICT in action.

·         No sales talks please

·         If you're using the web, make sure you save a copy of your tabs in Firefox, just in case it all goes down. ScrapBook is a great add-on to do this easily.

You can show short video clips or images of technology in your school, but please no Powerpoints.

  • Choose between micro-presentations, these last up to seven minutes or Nano Presentations which last up to two minutes
  • There will be no strict running order, rather speakers will be chosen at random, using the electronic fruit machine and administered by the MC
  • You must register for the event, even if you do not intend to speak
  • Please publicise by displaying the logo where you can and linking back to this page.

Join the event via Flashmeeting (online conference)

If you would like to manage this please contact dsmith.havering@lgfl.net
