The TeachMeet at BETT was another brilliant affair this year and for the first time ever it was held in the massive arena in the centre of the Excel centre. It was just like the boxing that took place there in the Olympics some education technology giants stood up and gave us blow after blow of amazing ideas and practice from their classroom.
As you may or may not know, at the TeachMeet at BETT is a bingo style lottery as to whether you get chosen to speak and this year my name came up.
Under the title ‘Learning with E’s’ and wanting to focus more on signal rather than noise, I decided to go low tech with my presentation and focus on IMPACT which I used as a key word in my presentation as an acrostic to form the key elements of my presentation:
I – Innovation
M – Marking
P – Progress
A – Assessment for learning
C – Collaboration
T – Technology – don’t use it
In each of the sections I just wanted to pass on ideas that people could use that were free, simple to use and that could have impact with their learners; whether it was in an ICT lesson or not.
Here’s my presentation:
Here is the brilliant creative visual representation of my presentation.
A massive thanks as always to Drew Buddie for coordinating everything and to everyone else who supported by doing all of the other jobs that come together to make the event such a smooth success. Thanks finally to all of the people who were there on the night, giving up their time to develop their CPD and those that said hello. It’s always great to catch up and also fantastic to put Twitter names to actual faces.
