Currently sitting here at TeachMeet drinking the beer having paid with some nice paper tokens and even got some change.
18.00 it is and we await with bated breath ... Ewan has started at exactly the moment.
Number one is on the stage ... NCSL ... Leadership Library ...Stuart Sutherland
This is the first of the 7 minute sessions . Some great resources for innovation education and the concept that you CAN teach it. THe url is inside NCSL.
Second up is Andrew Roland from RM and he demos the Asus minibook ... Ewan asks about education use of the minibook. Roland sites Dudley examples
Third up Geoff talking about ULearn
...world wide project resource... has geo-tagging.
In 2032 we will not be comming to TeachMeet Teachmeet will be coming to us.
Ian Usher pops up to talk about Moodle
and discovers that Flash Player was not working ... but ... he sorted it and got multiple cheers (tech rules okay)
Viv Bailey was up next talking about Softease's new product Honeycomb
and had to get onto her laptop which is a PC ... (the technology again) and really picked it up well and got on with the examples. Yacapaca
was up next but didn't look quick and easy to me.Pity !
15 minute break for compulsory beer drinking !
On to unit 2 ... battery dying ... will get back to this later.
Recharging ... did my bit on ictopus
by holding up bits of paper and card and then giving out lots of cards.
Sorry but at this point I ran out of energy and retired to Pizza Express for a carbo boost.

A big thanks to Ewan and all the sponsors for this session ... meeting and greeting and beer was great. These sort of sessions must become fixtures in any exhibition or conference where like-minded people physically meet. Not sure how the Flash Meeting or the meeting in SL went but for me they are very important as flying round the world is not the very best CPD option I can think of.
