TeachMeets are a great way for local educationalists to meet, discuss ideas and share best practice. They aim to engage and inspire fellow colleagues. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled, a teaching resource they love, a great website, a new activity - whatever you like! We would like people to come with ideas to share through an informal talk from 2 to 5 minutes, either individually or as a group. No idea or example is too small.An electronic whiteboard will be available and we would ask that if you would like to present your ideas please email these in advance to: sasha.mead@edgbarrowschool.co.uk
