What is TeachMeet?!!

 

Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about technologies. Anyone can share cool ideas they have or great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms.

 

'What can you do?'

 

You can come along to linger, loiter, contribute, chat, meet new people, or 'give a seven minute talk' or a 'two minute nano presentation'.

 

Rules for the talk:

 

  • It's only seven minutes long
  • Your setup is part of the seven minutes

 

Seven minute micropresentations or roundtables

If you are on Twitter, follow @TeachMeetAtSLF. During the event if you 'tweet' a comment, question etc to @TeachMeetAtSLF, it will be projected onto a wall (well, that's the plan). I've also added @slf08 on Twitter if you want to use it - it being shorter and all ;0)

 

Also...

TeachMeet in the Borders?

There is the possibility of a 'splinter' group holding a TeachMeet in the Scottish Borders on the same night, hopefully with a link up at some point. I had thought that it might be nice to do this on a small scale, but it looks like I'll be at SLF instead. I'm now looking to doing this another time, perhaps Late October/Early November, or around February/March time. If you are interested then get in touch through my blog - Stuart Meldrum

Louis promotes TeachMeet08. Turn up and you'll get to see what it says on the other side!! ;-)

 

Have we any suggestions for venue? (see Latest News, above)

 

THANKS FOR THE RESPONSES RE VENUE, and please do keep them coming. Had a very promising chat today with a few potential partners. We'll know by Thursday and be able to announce some kind of venue, I'm sure.

 

From David Muir: I am out and about just now but got someone to chase up some possibilities for me. She could find only three possibilities, 1) The Lighthouse @ £589 + VAT + catering. 2) Crowne Plaza Hotel @ £950 + extra for extras (also describes a s a "theatre style room" that can take up to 200 people) 3) The Senate Suite at University of Strathclyde (just along a bit from George Square) @ £90 for staffing + £25.50 and hour for the room + extra if we want catering. Has anybody else came up with something?

 

The Charles Wilson Building on the University of Glasgow campus is very grand - possibly a little small though. Or another possibility would be the atrium of Wilson Medical Building. - Stuart Meldrum

There is also an offer below from Joe Wilson to use SQA as the venue.

 

Just a thought, but what about the Centre for Contempory Arts in Glasgow. Its right by the dental hospital, a stones throw from the SECC and a great space for an event such as this ? (Jaye Richards)''
