Three TeachMeets taking place in South Africa soon!

TeachMeets are a great way to be exposed to new webtools that other teachers are using successfully in their classrooms. We keep a record of these on the TeachMeet South Africa wiki This wiki also gives ideas on how you can start a teachMeet at your school. 

What is a TeachMeet?

A tiny professional development “un-conference” where teachers get together to simply share ideas or lessons using ICT as a tool using different devices. If one cannot attend but would like to share…why not Skype or submit a video which I will present for you.

How long is a TeachMeet?

2 hours is usually a good stretch of time to hold a TeachMeet.

What happens at a TeachMeet?

On sign-up one indicates whether to attend as:
1. Keen Bean – prepare and share a 3 min idea or lesson
2. Enthusiastic Lurker – relax, learn and absorb!
