Teachmeets

Now been to 3 and spoken at 2. This is a new habit I’d like to keep up where possible although distance travelled yesterday led to tiredness today.

So what did I get from the experience ? Meet others open to creativity, risk taking and have ideas I might never even have considered. Plus more networking opportunities – a day after a conventional course how much follow up chat is involved? Chatted online with at least 6 others on technical aspects, follow up to discussions or the next idea …
This is what teaching should include – sharing, chatting, showing, learning and that’s just for the teachers. If we can’t communicate across school boundaries how can we encourage that in our pupils?
