\"My best continuing professional development\" | Ollie Bray in the TES


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about technologies and teaching.

The Big Questions

The questions from the floor (via text message) about the future of connected learning. What would your answer be?


What do you want Teachmeet 2032 to be discussing?




This event couldn't exist in the (really fun) way it does without the support of our sponsors:





For TeachMeet08 @ BETT you must register for the BETT Show first, and aim to get to the venue before 6pm. If you can't, let me know.

You can also get email updates on the prep for the event and the night itself by joining the Facebook group.


Anyone can share cool ideas they have or great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms by signing up here.

Just click 'edit', use the password teemhcaet and add your name, blog or website link and an idea of what you would like to share in seven minutes, if you want to share anything.

It's important to sign up if you intend to come, so that sponsors have an idea of how much space, prep and drinks need to be provided.







What can you do?


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


Rules for talks

  • Micro-presentations are strictly seven minutes long, nano-presentations two minutes long.
  • No PowerPoint allowed... unless... you're doing 20 slides for 20 seconds each (pecha kucha style - pecha kucha article).
  • Please make sure that what you're showing has actually been done in your classroom or a classroom of a colleague - this isn't blue skies, this is right here, right now stuff.
  • 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.


Take photos, write blogs... but tag them!

Tag your photos, videos and blog posts: teachmeet08




When and where?




Entry time - after 6pm you may not get in, although you can leave any time (tbc).



TeachMeet08 5th Edition, London, BETT

Early evening drinks, snacks, innovation



We could reserve tables at Pizza Express (under the venue). Add your name if you want to do this (at your own expense unless a sponsor comes forward).

What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say.

We just allow whatever's going to happen to happen. Names are chosen at random, with no guarantee that everyone can speak in the time. It's more equitable than first come first served, gives an opportunity for non-geeks to have a spiel, too. Cheers,

OK, as of 10pm on Wednesday 7 November, we're around 1 hour and 20 minutes of speakers - without questions. Given the time of day and the fact that I start flagging after half an hour, I say we cap the number of micropresentations or continue to allow free sign-up and smart mob the more interesting talks. What do others think?

Hi Ewan, I've corrected the date, it was sometime in Septemeber, but I'm not sure if the venue's ok! See you in London :0)
