The first Caerphilly 'TeachMeet' which focussed on improving learners skills through ICT.
NGfL Cymru were very happy to be invited by Debbie Harteveld to help organise Caerphilly's first Teachmeet. They were overwhelmed by the response from teachers and couldn't believe the turnout on the night with over 100 teachers present and over twenty five teachers willing to share their ideas.
Listed below are the names of the presenters and the titles of their presentations. Click on the images to see the individual films. We would like to say a huge thank you to you all. Your passion and dedication are very much appreciated, and we are sure that through sharing with each other in this way you are helping to raise standards and enhance the learning experiences of all children in your LA. But don't just take our word for it! Here are quotes from email feedback both Debbie Harteveld at Caerphilly LA and NGfL Cymru have received: -
'It was a really fantastic occasion and I gained so much from the experience. Listening to the wealth of opportunities our Caerphilly children are having and hearing the enthusiasm from other colleagues was extremely special. This morning I was so motivated I have written down our goals for IT over the next few years. A huge thank you to everyone who enabled this to happen.'
'I just wanted to thank you for arranging the Teachmeet yesterday. The whole evening was excellent. I was impressed with the quality and range of the presentations and I certainly have a number of new ideas/ initiatives that I intend to implement. I hope that there will be similar events in the future'
'What an excellent event the TeachMeet proved to be; an ideal vehicle for sharing practice and inspiring even the most computer literate schools. There was certainly something for everyone. More of this kind of professional networking please and perhaps consider this kind of format for HT/regional meetings at some point during the course of the year.'
Just wanted to say WOW what a fantastic evening last night was.It was great to see all the wonderful ideas and great activities being delivered by teachers across all age ranges and the obvious benefits to all pupils in terms of impact on raising standards in literacy, key skills, their confidence and self esteem.Many thanks to all, just one question…… when will the next one be ?!!! We should spread the word to other schools who were not able to attend last night for them to be involved next time.'
'Excellent event last night – Better than BETT. I needed to see what a 21st Century classroom should look like and this certainly showed me.
