TeachMeet09BETTFriday 16th January 2009 Apex Room at BETT 6.00 till 9.00 pm

Please be reassured - this event is happening and will operate in a very similar way to previous Teachmeets


Stephen Heppell's office are working very hard to ensure all the housekeeping elements are in place and that everything runs smoothly



If you wish to speak or sponsor then please scroll down and read the rules below - let's make this a Teachmeet to remember!


This is a free event - The BETT Show site mistakenly asked customers reserving their place for TeachMeet09 to pay a charge. This should be refunded in December to all those who had paid the charge. Read here for more details.

The only "registration" you need to do (other than registering for free to come to the BETT show itself) is to add your name below. If you have already paid then try and get a refund or switch for another seminar. TeachMeets are free and should WILL remain so. 

It is really important your name is added to the list below. If your name is not down you may not be allowed in!


Note that the PBWiki system has changed the way it allows editing, so you'll either need to:

  • create an account which, when activated, should give you editing access to this page and allow you to receive email updates when the page changes; or   
  • login and use the limited guest account - username guest password teemhcaet  to add your details below.  You won't be able to be notified about anything by doing this.    This account can only be used by one person at a time.  

Thank you to our sponsors who between them have paid for all aspects of the evening's event:

TeachMeets are about sharing practice, so if you've something interesting or exciting to share, please add your name to one of these lists - either for 7 minutes' or 2 minutes' duration. The rules (such as they are):

  • You can't sell or simply plug anything - this has to be classroom-based practice that's happening right now, not "this is what someone could do in their classroom using product or tool X"
  • No PowerPoint / KeyNote / other presentation software - unless you're doing 20 slides for 20 seconds each (pecha kucha style - pecha kucha article);
  • You can't sell anything - reeling off a long list of features with no context is counted as selling.
  • You will be asked to stop when your time is up - time is short and there will be plenty of people happy to ask you about what you've spoken about when you've finished!
  • Your time includes setup - so if you bring a laptop and need to plug it in to a projector, find the audio I/O connection, etc., that all eats in to the time that you can use to share. A way around this is to make sure what you're showing is online, then use the machine at the front to access it.
  • If you want to use your own machine, it's worth using the Scrapbook extension for Firefox to save offline copies of pages you want to use - just like in the classroom, it's always good to have something to fall back on if your connection to the internet just disappears...
  • It's TeachMeet not SalesMeet - if you sell and don't feature any classroom practice, you'll be asked to stop. Harsh but fair...
  • As it's likely that there will be more people wanting to contribute than there are slots for them, presentations will be selected at random - that's the way TeachMeets work, so please don't be offended if your name doesn't come up. It always turns out like that for a few potential contributors.


Micropresentations - 7 minutes maximum:

Unsure of what to do? You could watch the recording of the FlashMeeting broadcast of last year's TeachMeet at BETT to get an idea of what a micropresentation is like. Alternatively you could watch a micropresentation from last year's TeachMeet section of "the best of BETT".


Important notes for presenters:

  1. as is the way of TeachMeets past and future, there are more presentations listed than there is time to present - so it's quite possible that, even if your name is here, you might not get to present if your name doesn't get (randomly) chosen.
  2. if you have material you'd like to use, please place it online... YouTube, Flickr, your VLE, it's up to you. This will save you the time of having to plug in your own material - plus in some cases it will allow other people - both those in the room and those beyond - to access / view / download / evaluate what you've done.
  3. finally, for the umpteenth time of saying, your presentation has to be about practice going on now- not a project for the coming year, not a product which could be used in someone's class. If you want to remove your name from the presentations list to the lurkers list, that's fine, or even if you want to decline the opportunity to present if your name is chosen, then that's just as fine. It's much better than being asked to stop because you're not talking about learning that's taking place now...

Anyone below about 180 on this list (if it gets that far) is welcome to sign up but might not get in, since the Apex Room has a capacity of 250 - we have to add the Presenters and Helpers to the Lurker numbers... however, other people may drop out, so please do add your name.


Virtual Participation options:

Flashmeeting attendees:

A flashmeeting has been organised to allow people unable to attend in person to follow the teachmeet. The flashmeeting room is limited to 25 participants, one of whom must be at the meeting to relay the video/audio feed. The flashmeeting is booked from 17.30-21.30. You can join in on the night by clicking here. The flashmeeting is set to the default recording of the event. Let me (Sinclair) know if recording function needs to be switched off and I will amend the booking.

If you want something related to BETT to peruse, why not have a look at the EduBETT wiki (hosted on wetpaint). It's a fringe style activity but isn't the same as TeachMeet (as far as anyone can tell). [It's NOT related to Teachmeet - it's an event being organised under the 'BETTr' title - and includes an unConference on the Wednesday of the BETT show) which has been set up by some people from Further/Higher Education]. Please contact us if you can help.

TeachEat - a meal afterwards


Please sign up if you'd like to go out for a meal post-TeachMeet at Pizza Express at Olympia, directly underneath the Apex Room. We have a provisional booking for about 70 places (which will be updated during the week of BETT) for a 9.15 or 9.30 start. Pizza Express have indicated that they will need to know final(ish) numbers by Thursday 15th, so please sign up before then.


Getting sponsorship for this element will be hard, mainly because it's difficult for potential sponsors to (a) get invoiced by Pizza Express (b) put it on expenses or (c) bring cash. However, if we can, we will...


Pizza Express Offer web siteSo in the meantime, how about we ask Pizza Express to cover half the cost? Here's how to do it...


  1. Go to www.pizzaexpressoffers.co.uk
  2. Enter your details to get a "two meals for the price of one" voucher.
  3. Print off your voucher and bring it along to the TeachMeet!
  4. Make a friend by cutting the cost of both your meals in half - the small print for the voucher says that the most expensive meal is free!
  5. Please remember to print out and bring your voucher - you'll be helping everyone at TeachMeet make the sponsorship go further!


If you decide that you can't come to the meal, please remember to remove your name from this list! Please sign up for this by Thursday evening as we need to let the restaurant know what numbers we are expecting.

To err in the process of learning, to learn from mistakes. Much has been pointed out about the importance of paying attention to this aspect in the classes, however, we are far from giving the error the relevance it has and of approaching it in order to build a quality thought. What do we do when we make mistakes? What do we do when another person makes a mistake? These are simple questions that can help us to evoke how we react in the presence of errors, which is of vital importance when we are educators. https://www.essaymafia.co.uk/

What I want to know is why you didnt think to include the other side of this issue ? There are so many things that youre missing here that I dont see how you could actually form an intelligent opinion on the subject. Its like you didnt even consider that there me be another side here.
