Be Inspired: TeachMeet08 NE London tomorrow night
Tomorrow night nearly 100 of us are meeting in Redbridge to the north east of London for TeachMeet08 NE London, organised on the fly, on the back of a trip I'm making to the borough that morning. It's not too late to sign up and come and listen to some of the 26 proposed micro- and nano-presentations from teachers, ICT Coordinators and inventors.
I'm thrilled to have the chance to see yet more innovations from (almost) old friends Drew Buddie, Andy "take a look at this little gadget" Black and Softease's Peter Sadler (they're once more sponsoring the event as, I would guess, the principal company that gets the live web in designing its products). I want to nab Richard Millwood for a much overdue pint, and can't wait to hear how you teach folk fiddle over Moodle. I wonder if they do mandoline...
Better still, though, is to get a chance to see what those in the council I'm working with are already doing. Many will have been hard at the chalkface as the ICT event carried its course during the day, and this is our chance to have a two-way chat about where things are and where they could be headed. It's rare to get that as a speaker, and will make the day so much more enrichening for both me and the Redbridge teachers. It'll also be a great chance to have a chilled chat with Anthony Evans, the Primary ICT consultant that has been behind much (no, sorry, all) of the organising of this TeachMeet.
