Teachmeet at BETT seems to have gathered some momentum and organisation this week. Teachmeet will be at Olympia on the Friday of BETT starting at 6pm and running until about 9pm. At present the following people have agreed to talk:
- Tom Barrett (Twitter) Happy to talk about something that has been going on in my classroom. Maybe an update on Multi-Touch desks.
- Neil Winton (Twitter)- The Adventures of Johnny Bunko – What is Lesson 7 anyway?
- Miles Berry (twitter) – happy to help. Willing to present, probably something open source.
- Greg Hodgson – I will be there for a couple of days with Adobe but willing to show and tell about our latest exploits using virtual spaces and parental engagement.
- Dai Barnes (twitter) Present some as yet undetermined classroom practice
- Leon Cych (twitter) – Will be there – no slides no graphics just a small talk entitled ‘Why the government doesn’t get it about digital culture and learning‘ – a brief polemic but not fussed if I don’t get to present.
