TeachMeets are short two-hour events where teachers teach teachers about what they are doing in their classes to promote technology. This could be a lesson or idea where they use iPads, tablets or PCs. We love to keep track of where this happens in South Africa on our TeachMeet-South Africa wiki (http://teachmeet-southafrica.wikispaces.com/) so that we can promote the TeachMeet and follow the event on Twitter. Consequently we would like to advertise the 17th TeachMeet in SA (to our Knowledge) which will take place at Elkanah House in Cape Town Saturday 8th June.
You can sign up for the TeachMeet on Linda Fowlkes Teachmeet wiki (http://elkteachmeet.pbworks.com)
Here is a little summary of a TeachMeet given by Linda
