TeachMeet comes to East Lothian

TeachMeet is coming to East Lothian!! It’s about time the teachers of East Lothian got together to have our own TeachMeet.

What is TeachMeet? TeachMeet is an informal gathering of teachers. The idea is to network and share ideas. Anyone can come. Anyone can present. Ideally, these presentations should be about what’s going on in classrooms. Have a look at the this great movie from BrainPop which explains it better than I can…

What’s with the CfE tagline? TeachMeets have often focused on the use of ICT in classrooms in the past. While this is clearly important, we’d like to try and broaden the spectrum a little for our TeachMeet. We’d like to encourage presentations on any new ideas teachers have been trying out in our classrooms, whether they involve technology or not. This is why we’ve given our TeachMeet the ‘curriculumforexcellenceedition’ tag line.

When and where is it? It’s on Thursday 4th February 2010 from 6pm to 8pm at the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick.

What can I do? You can just come along and listen and chat, please sign up though. You could sign up to give a 2 minute presentation, or even a 7 minute presentation. Or, you could sponsor the event.

I hope this all makes sense, if not please give me a shout.

See you there?
