On the evening of Tuesday 21st April we are opening the doors of the Showcase Classroom in our London Victoria offices for a #teachmeet hosted by ‘Urban Teacher’ Mark Martin. As well as being ICT Teacher at St Mark’s Academy, Mark is one of our Microsoft Expert Educators for 2015. The event is free to attend, although spaces are limited, so to avoid disappointment, please register now.

Tuesday, 21 April 2015 from 18:00 to 20:00 (BST)
As an educator, Mark is passionate about developing the capabilities of technology within learning for students, teacher and also parents. In order to do this as effectively as possible, it's important to meet with other members of the education community regularly to discuss and share best practices, and this is exactly what we are hoping to help facilitate with Mark next week.
The event itself, is very informal, although there will be the opportunity to present to the other attendees. If you have a best practice, a set of tips, or wish to share some insight or thought leadership with your peers in the wider educator community, please contact Mark on firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up as a presenter.
In order to keep the event as relevant and worthwhile as possible, please be mindful of the following presentation rules:
You MUST be a teacher in the classroom!
You CANNOT pitch any products for sale!
You can use whatever presentation format you want to.
The important point, is that you get your message across in the time allocated to you (2-7 minutes).
If your presentation is online please share links to your presentation before or after the event.
Teachmeets are a great opportunity to engage with your peers and be inspired to make a difference at your school. Even if you aren’t planning on presenting, there will be plenty of time to speak with other likeminded individuals and share your thoughts over a canapé and a drink or two! Likewise, if you are unable to make it in person, you can follow the #tmshowcase hashtag on Twitter to be part of the conversation online.
We want to hear about your creative approaches to teaching and learning at your school, and look forward to seeing you next Tuesday!
