TeachMeet Takeover NEEDS YOU!

The last time I wrote about TeachMeet Takeover a handful of intrigued companies had shown some interest in allowing teachers to use their stands at BETT 2010 to talk about free tools. Now we have seven who have signed up ready to be taken over!

I don’t enjoy the BETT show very much. The TeachMeet is always a tonic and the opportunity to meet people also helps, in part, to dilute the overwhelming nature of it all. In my opinion the biggest challenge for the TeachMeet community is to encourage new people along to the events. TeachMeet Takeover is about taking the message of free, powerful (mainly) online ideas to other teachers attending BETT 2010.

In a nutshell: Educators presenting about FREE ideas on the vendor stands at the world’s largest educational technology event. Sharing inspiration for free.

Take a look at the wiki, the companies are willing. The timetable is filling up. Are you up for helping? Can you spare 10 minutes on the day that you are at BETT 2010 to talk about free classroom ideas?

  • What do I have to do? >> Bring your great learning ideas to BETT and talk about them.
  • What can I talk about or present? >> Free ideas, that is the only required aspect. It can be successful work online / offline. It can be school based projects or simple class ideas that have worked really well.
  • How long does it need to be? >> Completely up to you. Companies have signed up for 30 minute takeover slots.
  • When is it? >> Throughout the full course of the show – Wednesday-Saturday. See the wiki for details.
  • Do I have to be a teacher? >> No, just have practical learning ideas that work.
  • How formal is it? >> In the same style as TeachMeet, relaxed and fun.
  • Do I need a prepared presentation? >> If you like. Or not – just examples of work to talk about – illustrate it how you like.
  • Where will it be? >> Each company has signed up to slots of time on the wiki. They have added their stand location too.
  • Where do I sign up? >> Go to the wiki and add your name.

Thanks a landlord it! I acquired yet some insight. Life is so colorful, we should be able to live in, such as Korea and honor the planet. Human life is like rivers, slowly flowing, flowing rivers, flowing through the snow, flows through the prairie and ultimately into the sea, return to the embrace of nature, start a new reincarnation. Allow us to feel the meaning of life will come only to those you have those memories http://www.cheap-nikeshox.com/nike-shox-TL3.html

Hi
We do the PR for BETT and I've been talking to Chris from Scholastic about the TeachMeet Takeover. We are thinking of posting some information about this on the BETT blog, and would like to suggest that if you have any further information about TeachMeet at BETT (aside from what is on this site), then please email it through to me (jo.lee@mangomarketing.com). We can also list the schedule in the press office for any interested media that would like to pop along as well if you like.
Thanks
Jo
