TeachMeetWMLanguages #tmwml

On May 6th I made the trip across Birmingham in rush hour traffic to attend TeachMeetWM organised by the irrepressible and absolutely bonkers Simone Haughey at her school Robin Hood Primary. I sadly missed the choir singing and the start of proceedings thanks to a staff meeting and the traffic, but I arrived in the […]

TeachMeetEdShow – my 2+7 minutes

Last Friday (21st) saw me charging from Stafford to Marston Green, and then running at high speed (wearing inappropriate shoes obviously!) from the carpark to Hall3 for TeachMeetEdShow. Fortified by hugs from various people including Simone (who is as bonkers as me which helps) and Buncey (who is exceedingly clever but also daft as a […]

Teachmeet Brum #tmbrum

Last night I braved the cross city traffic and went to King Edwards Five Ways (nowhere near the Five Ways I know!) for TeachmeetBrum. Organised by @frogphilp aka Steve Philp of Paganel Primary, it was an intimate affair (but that’s not a bad thing!) but that’s a good thing as we all talked to one […]

TeachMeetBrum – Memrise.com

As I now live in Switzerland I can’t be at TeachMeet Brum tonight. To assuage my disappointment, I thought I might appear virtually and therefore prepared a little video presentation on Memrise.com, a really great site that I’m using to learn some German, revise the Catalan I learned at university and to play around in […]

#TMBETT2012

I couldn’t be at BETT this year which made me sad. I can do without the exhibition in itself; what I missed was the interaction with others and particularly the TeachMeet and TeachMeetTakeovers from which I have learned so much. Not to be beaten, I recorded a 2 minute nano-presentation in case my name came […]

TeachMeet WM Languages – 7 minutes presentation

    Supporting the ‘less confident‘ is the theme of my 7 minute presentation. Some ideas I may or may not throw out there! 1. embed sound in presentations eg El granjero tiene una granja El pequeño petirrojo final 2. make sound files – and encourage their use eg BGFL website 3.have ‘expert’ pupils who you […]

TeachMeet WM Languages – 2 minute presentation

My two minute presentation is about Postcrossing. I have mentioned it before but it’s worth mentioning again as it’s always so popular when I do! In its simplest terms, you “send a postcard and receive a postcard back from a random person somewhere in the world!” Really easy! Writing a postcard is a short focussed […]

Lisibo @ TeachMeet #etwpdw

Below is my seven minute micropresentation from Teachmeet styley thingy (I think that name could stick!) at the eTwinning Ambassadors meeting #etwpdw. In my seven minutes (I think the lovely @digitalmaverick gave me a little longer….) I talked about 1. using Wallwisher to collect ideas, have asynchronus discussions and review learning / progress.  I set up […]

‘TeachMeet styley thingy’ #etwpdw

Yesterday, as the European eTwinning Ambassadors PDW at National college of School Leadership in Nottingham drew to a close, I took part in what Drew Buddie aka @digitalmaverick entitled ‘a Teachmeet style-y thingy’. Drew introduced the idea of an ‘unconference’ explaining both TedX and Teachmeet before opening the floor to others to share their 7 […]

Lisibo @ BETT

BETT seems ages ago – but it’s only a month. However, it’s a very long time to have neglected to blog my thoughts. I have been exceptionally busy since then – excuses excuse! – so much so that I’ve been struggling to keep up with life let alone blogging. However, I was reminded that there […]
