Whit a laugh! Having struggled to try and see all I wanted to, fitted in a PKC GLOW mentor’s meeting, spoken briefly to Ewan, Andrew, Ian, John, John, Mrs Blethers, David (of the immaculate taste) and lots more, I finally had the chance to sit down with a glass of excellent wine (thanks Stormhoek… go and buy some today, especially the Shiraz!) and listen to some real-life uses of technology in the classroom… well, I did once I’d given AB a hand bringing the necessary bits and pieces up from his car!
Plenty of others have commented on the actual sessions, so I’ll just say that I learned more in an hour and a half that I could apply to my classroom teaching than I have in my last two visits to SETT. I also had the very real pleasure of getting to sit next to Chris who entertained me royally despite my being full of the cold and her singing later on in the week.
What I realised very quickly was that TeachMeet needs to be bigger! Bigger venue, more time, more socialising… though I also realise that this happened when the crowd decanted to the Goat. Perhaps we need to give more thought to ‘sociable networking’ in future. I know that, from my point-of-view I’m already looking forward to TeachMeet07 as much as SETT07… and next time, I promise to find something to talk about!
