Venue – The Royal Tandoori in Reading
Time – 7:30pm-9:30pm
Date: 23rd Nov 2011
Last year’s informal, free event for Teachers and Educators was a resounding success and the overwhelming feedback was that we should do it again.
This year’s event will again follow a mix of the usual Unconference or Teachmeet structure. We will have our special guest host @chickensaltash co-hosting along with myself. So why not join us for some great indian street food and a drink.
We are looking for volunteers to speak in the following:-
- Mini-Presentations for 10 mins
- Nano- Presentations 3mins.
What to discuss and present
We are looking for cool things you are doing with Microsoft technology and/or examples of work, that illustrate and solve current issues or themes. or are just down right great learning activities. Some of the issues that you might also like to consider for example:-
- How can you possibly learn through playing games?
- Is the curriculum meeting the needs of 21st century learners?
- Is Maths teaching as bad as we are told?
Through such topics we hope to spark debate, conversation and inspire some great ideas.
How do I sign up for a presentation?
That’s easy, just add your name and presentation topic/theme and presentation type (Mini or Nano) as a comment on this Facebook page. If you are looking to attend, click the ‘I am attending button’
Places at this event will be limited so sign up today!
Internet access can be intermittent at venues so be prepared with an alternative, this just adds to the fun. There is no guarantee you will present as presentations will be selected at random, but we will try and fit in as many in as we can.
If you are attending our Partners in Learning UK Forum and staying in Reading, then you are probably already attending, but it wouldn’t hurt to sign up here as well. This is a social event and its good to see who is attending and plan to meet up.
