TeachMeet Dorset 19th June Details

Page history last edited by Mark Mortell 8 years, 10 months ago


The Badger Brewery in Blandford is hosting and sponsoring #TMDorset for the second time! This will be a fantastic and exciting event for all teachers, educators and those interested in improving innovation and technology within schools!


The event is being organised by Mike Tidd (@tiddtalk) Head of Geography at Gillingham School, Gary Spracklen (@Nelkcarps) Director of Digital Learning and Innovation and South West Digital Educator of the Year (2012) at IPACA and Alan Frame (@HeadDownEyesUp) Headteacher of Downlands School.


This brilliant evening will take place in the Visitors Centre of the Badger Brewery where a bar will be open and a buffet provided. Why not come and sample some fine Badger ales and eat at the famous Dorset Badger Brewery.


Please do get in touch if you have any questions or wish to help sponsor the event. Thank you to Hall & Woodhouse for hosting us at the Badger Brewery and to twinkl and Toshiba for sponsoring the event : )

What is TeachMeet?


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. Education professionals from all sectors are welcome to take part.


The main part of TeachMeet is hearing stories about learning, from teachers. This is not an event to present about a product or theory - this is a chance for teachers from all types of establishments to hear ideas from each other. Real narratives of practice that make a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and a whole bucket load of networking to boot!
