In celebration of their 50th Birthday, Brescia House School hosted a Microsoft TeachMeet with a difference on 15 March 2016.
Teachers were seated at tables, each decorated using a birthday party theme, and invited to share their ideas on innovation in teaching and learning with those seated at their tables. Each of the tables was hosted by a Brescia House School teacher who is also currently a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert. In addition to sharing ideas for integrating technology into their classrooms, teachers enjoyed playing “party games”, which included trying out Google cardboard, completing a scavenger hunt on their phones, and pining the icon of their favourite app on a board in the hopes of winning a prize by hitting the lucky spot.
Teachers at Brescia House School, a Microsoft Showcase School, excel at using technology to enhance learning. Their TeachMeet events are always great fun, and a generous way of providing teachers from the wider community with an opportunity to learn from one another.
