TeachMeet08 - Mark it in your diaries now!
BETT is the largest education conference in the UK and, for the first time, there will be TeachMeet08 in London, on Friday 11th January, from 5pm-9pm at Olympia, and you're invited. Just head over to the page and sign up right now before numbers are capped.
We've got room for a potential 300 TeachMeeters at what is now widely acclaimed as the best professional development for teachers since, well, sliced bread, but, depending on what sponsorship we receive this number might have to be capped.
It's going to be a Friday night, so we'll make sure that people enjoy it as much as an Eastenders cliffhanger.
But this is as open an event as they come. Thanks to support from these guys we're going to be able to put on some nice treats for those who want to be amused, enthused and learn something new, by teachers, for teachers. Teachers are invited to sign up an idea for a micro-presentation lasting 7 minutes, a nano-presentation lasting 2 minutes or just to lurk.
It might even be of interest to those working in the education media interest to see what innovation is actually going on in schools across the country.
All you need to do is head over to the page at www.teachmeet.org.uk, and sign up your name.
It's not a tech event, either, with the emphasis very much on the Teach. BETT provides a great opportunity to get some new faces interested in new and innovative teaching and learning. Get your friends and colleagues who are at BETT anyway to come along from 5pm and join in the fun.
I have tons more to share about the event, some time next week, If you're interested in adding your support to the event before the big sponsors' announcement at the end of November, then send your kind offers to me or through the wiki.
