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 […]

Jugando en español – #DevonMFL

Last night was #DevonMFL Teachmeet. Despite being given warning, life took over and my contribution didn’t arrive in time for the night. However, rather than waste it, I decided to share it here! So, here is my hastily – but not hastily enough – prepared short presentation on using games to learn Spanish in and […]

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 […]

Let’s go to the zoo! Teachmeet #etwinuk

I’m at NCSL in Nottingham at the UK National eTwinning Conference. This afternoon we’re having a Teachmeet and I’ve decided to share about one idea that has come from our Comenius Regio project and specifically a visit to the zoo. Here’s the presentation (lots of pics!) and the link to my blogpost that expands on […]

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 […]

‘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 […]
