TeachMeet Fleetwood

On Tuesday 23rd April we hosted the first TeachMeet at Flakefleet, primarily for staff in the Fleetwood area. Our dual purpose was to introduce the idea of TM as a way of generating enthusiasm and collaboration in technology across our local community and to demonstrate where we were in terms of the use of mobile technologies and how we were beginning to apply these to our children’s learning experiences.

A good turnout listened to a range of speakers sharing thoughts on Garageband, Book Creator, Augmented Reality, QR codes and their uses, advice on single IPad use, Foundation stage profiling and five minute lesson planning. A lot to take in but also a demonstration of where education could and should be going in the 21st Century, individualising learning opportunities in a manner that engages and enthuses with real purpose.
