TeachMeet Northampton 2015

Page history last edited by helen.caldwell@btinternet.com 5 years, 2 months ago



What is TeachMeet?

Come along to an evening of sharing teaching and learning ideas. We'll have mini presentations on creative classroom activities across the curriculum and there will be lots of ideas you can start using straight away. Everyone is welcome to join in: teachers from all types of schools, teaching all subjects and age groups. The main part of TeachMeet is hearing stories about any aspect of learning from teachers.  It is a chance for teachers to meet to hear ideas from each other and be inspired by colleagues. 


We are delighted to welcome Sally Hamson, Head of Wollaston Community Primary School to help host our TeachMeet. We'll also have refreshments and some exciting technologies to explore during the evening such as Oculus Rifts, Robotiky robots, Raspberry Pi kits, Makey Makey kits, sensory room equipment, Code Club projects, green screening and kitchen chemistry. There will be hands-on demonstrations of these from 5.30-6pm and during the break from 7.00-7.20pm. 


See below for a complete list of presentations and demonstrations.


Rebecca Heaton and Jean Edwards will be creating some exciting visual minutes for us during the evening to document the presentations.
