TeachMeets

A few weeks ago I didn’t even know what a TeachMeet was, now I have attended two and presented at one. I have become a huge fan and can’t wait to attend the next one!

TeachMeets are fast, entertaining, educational and they are open to everyone. They began in the UK and are now spreading all over the world.

TeachMeets are friendly meetings where teachers get together and present great ideas and what they are doing in their classrooms with technology. The whole idea is to network with other teachers and learn from each other – isn’t that a fantastic idea? (It’s definitely more exciting than the usual staff meeting!)

While you are at the TeachMeet, use the correct hash tag (e.g. #tmsydney) to comment on the presenters as they present and share their great ideas with your Twitter PLN.

So what are you waiting for? Jump on board and get ready to be excited about teaching with technology!

WARNING: the excitement is contagious.
