Teachmeet Takeover @ BETT2011
On Friday, I hit BETT in London. I didn’t really see much on Friday apart from some wonderful presentations as part of TeachMeetTakeover which I was helping coordinate for the day.
TeachMeetTakeover is a sort of ‘organised flashmob’ idea where companies offer their stands for half hour / hour slots to be used by someone talking about free ideas that they’ve used in their classroom. There were presentations throughout Thursday, Friday and Saturday – the variety of ideas can be seen from the wikispace, which also shows how many offered but didn’t get to take part.
Having snaffled a helium balloon from a stand, I taped the logo to it and flew it by presentations – it seemed to make people stop for that all important three seconds it took for them to be drawn into the presentations!
My presentation was on the Babcock4S stand – and I have to say a huge thank you to Dan and the team for their welcome – and the beer!
Below are the slides from my talk entitled ‘Free stuff doesn’t have to be pants!
A lady from IRIS Connect was videoing it – if it gets published, I’ll upload the link! UPDATE – blog post with link
And look! Just found this photo on Flickr that was taken during my presentation – you can see my legs just under the banner!

Nice post! I also did a presentation on the Babcock 4s stand. A few stopped by. I was followed by @gvibe and managed to tape a bit of her great augmented reality/zoomburst presentation here – http://kevinmulryne.posterous.com I also managed to get the first part of @dannynic’s IWB presentation at the same address.
TMTakeOver was great so thanks for posting your reflections!
