My Teacher2Teacher Conference

It’s been a crazy 10 days or so since the Teacher2Teacher conference in Canada and I’ve only now had a chance to sit down and put down some thoughts about the event. I landed in Calgary on the Tuesday evening after a 9 hour flight from London. I spent the evening with an old friend who lives in downtown Calgary. She also happens to be a kickass dance teacher and choreographer, so if you have any contacts in the dance...

Teacher 2 Teacher Smart Notebook Files

I had an absolute blast at the Teacher2Teacher conference in Bow Island, Alberta this week. It was fantastic to meet so many great educators who up until now I had only contacted via Twitter. There was such a great buzz around the school – it was brilliant. I’ll write more about the conference soon – but for now,  I just want to put this post up quickly because I told the delegates I would. (EDIT – I’ve...

BETT2010 – It’s the Fringe Stupid.

The first few weeks of January are always conference season for me. I start with the Association for Science Education (ASE) Conference and then its BETT, the ICT conference. It’s very interesting to compare the two different approaches. At the ASE the main focus is on the free workshops and seminars running over the few days. It’s held at a university and there are hundreds of different talks going on every day. Anyone...

Get infected with the “I Can” virus

This video was shown at last night’s TEDxOrenda event at BETT last night. I thought it was pretty inspirational. Kiran Bir Sethi shows how her groundbreaking Riverside School in India teaches kids life’s most valuable lesson: “I can.” Watch her students take local issues into their own hands, lead other young people, even educate their parents. And if they can do it… you can do it!...

ASE Conference 2010 – Blogs and Wikis talk

I’m just back from a very snowy Nottingham having attended the ASE (Association for Science Education) Conference.

The presentation is here on Slideshare if you want to download your own version. All the links to the various blogs and wikis that I showed should work...

If you are a teacher in the Kent/Sussex regions then you really should consider attending TeachMeet SuKe early next term. It’s taking place in Tonbridge, Kent on Friday 18th September from 7pm.

Teacher2Teacher Conference – Canada 2010

Just a little bit of advance notice, and some exciting news for me! If you are in or near Alberta, Canada next March then I will be speaking at the Teacher2Teacher conference on 18th and 19th March 2010. I’m very excited about it since I don’t get to do too many conferences abroad plus I have a real soft spot to Canada (I’m actually heading to Calgary for my Summer holidays later this year). My Canadian friends have...
