TeachMeet YH 2010

(Editing instructions at foot of page.)


Teachmeet Yorkshire and Humber 2010

Meet at: Doncaster South City Learning Centre (Directions) - Friday 26th March 6.00 - 9.30pm


What is TeachMeet?


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. That's Online Jobs in the Philippines. This is an informal gathering of those curious about teaching and technology. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. Would be good to see and hear both Primary and Secondary Teachers. Mosquito Magnet Products.

A little inspiring movie for the TeachMeeters:

What can you do?

You can come along to chat, meet new people, or give a seven minute talk, a two minute nano presentation or lead a conversation.

As with all Teachmeets, we are dependant on our sponsors for a venue, refreshments, wifi, equipment and other costs.



Presentation Rules


What are the rules for this Teachmeet ?


You can use whatever presentation format you want including PowerPoint, keynote, prezi, slide rocket, 280 slides, you could just talk, show something from the web, hold up a poster or you could sing a song or do something different ?


The important thing is that you get your message across and you will only get one minute set up time.


Be prepared for technical difficulties and be ready to wing it on the night! That’s what makes TeachMeet exciting!


(what do others think?, please edit and add thoughts)

Tags and Twitter - Follow #TMYH2010 on Twitter - TAG EVERYTHING!

The key to sharing (and finding) is good tags. The default tag for this will be #TMYH2010, and I'll sort out delicious/diigo/etc nearer the time!


When you are mentioning TeachMeet YH 2010 whilst using Twitter please just add #TMYH2010 somewhere in the tweet - that way it will be picked up by a Twitter search. On the night of the TeachMeet we will have a projected live feed of the Twitter backchannel. Repeat the links to the Ustream/Twitcam and WebEx broadcasts adding #TMYH2010 so others can follow at home.


Answers From the Crowd

As an alternative to being lead in conversation by a more knowing other, participants can post a topic or question here which will be the focus of a twitter thread. At an appropriate time in the evening the focus of each thread could be presented in either a twitterfall or twazzup presentation. This idea would allow the lurkers to contribute to the event without the need to stand up and present.



  1. What works well in your classroom? Techie or not techie! 
  2. ???
