I just had my first experience of a TeachMeet and I jumped right in and presented too… it was a fantastic experience!!! My brain is fairly bursting with ideas I thought I better blog 🙂
Matt started us off and talked strategic planning and infrastructure for developing staff at school in ICT. I love to hear of the approach different people take to this.
Now did this presentation get the brain bursting!! The chat in Adobe connect went nuts with the enthusiasm that ensued. Augmented reality is a relatively new player to the technology world but its hitting all the sweet spots! What John presented inspired me and so many others. I see the potential for teachers to create OH & S and safety experiences to use in TAS and Science classrooms for students to get a firsthand look at the potential dangers they need to be careful of in practical lessons. Others in the TeachMeet thought of things like interactive art shows at school and an interactive newsletter. I won’t to take the tool presented, Aurasma, and use it in PLANE to create interactive resources now so watch out world 🙂 (I could stay up and start work now but may not make it to work then lol)
Finally, I presented on Moodle, a great passion of mine and it was so fun! A lot of what I talked about is already amongst my blog posts so peruse them and you’ll get a sense of what I presented on.
This was only my first experience of TeachMeets but now I’m hooked!! Will look forward to engaging with it again soon 🙂
