There’s a rather special TeachMeet taking place in Dundee next week, and I’m really excited to be taking part. The reason? This is a TeachMeet with a strong focus on game based learning. Organised by myself and the irrepressible Derek Robertson, we are delighted and honoured to have an extra special guest in the shape of Dean Groom.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year or so, you cannot have helped but notice that Minecraft is a bit of a phenomenon. Dean Groom is leading the way with regards to using Minecraft in schools, and I can’t wait to hear his thoughts on Minecraft and especially the ever so clever Massively Minecraft site… and no, I’m really not that sure about why Minecraft is so good and worth investigating, and that’s what makes a TeachMeet so brilliant! I get a quick burst of CPD from someone who knows what he or she is talking about, and I can go away and try it myself.
If you are available on the 13th, you really do owe it to yourself to get to Dundee Uni. It’ll be fun, and also a great bit of CPD… check out the wiki for more details and to sign up. 😉
