Less than a
month week to go until TeachMeet East Lancs on Tuesday 9th July, so it’s time for an update.
Don’t forget to sign up for the TeachMeet if you haven’t already.
The Important Bit
Yes, there will be pie, but I’m ordering a week before, so sign up quickly if you haven’t already. Drinks and biscuits are being provided by Bernie and his team at Innovative Enterprise. They are also sending some copies of their Mileu PSHE card game to be given away on the night.
You can get here pretty much any time you like after school finishes, but I’ll probably have stopped running around too much by 4.30. We’re hoping to start at 5pm ish.
The list of presenters (to be selected by a random factor) so far is:
|Julia Skinner||@theHeadsOffice||Improving writing using blogging & 100 word challenge|

So I’m getting all this food & CPD for free, but what do I win?
I love Twitter! Because of it, we’ve had some really generous offers of raffle prizes, they are:
4 x ‘Mileu‘ PHSCE resource kits from Innovative Enterprise.
1 x ‘Let’s Think Homework‘ book fom Thinking Child.
3 x 1 year subscription to Triptico Plus from Triptico.
And some unspecified freebies from Toshiba that haven’t arrived yet. I’m excitedly watching the post and hoping for a deathstar.
We are on Manchester Road, Astley. Postcode M29 7EE. Here is the Google Map.
And here is my expertly edited version!
The TeachMeet is in
the ‘Excellence Centre’ which I’ve coloured pink on the map below. Not any more! Due to popular demand, we’ve moved to the lower school hall (green on the map).
So, it turns out it’s the school summer concert on the same night, we’re now in the drama studio (green on the map), which is obviously much nicer and has comfy seats and everything.
It’s a BIG site with 2 main car parks. You will be much better off using car park A , parking in B means that you will have to find your way around the outside of the building.
I’ve also marked the pub on the map, as you can see, it’s a real trek.
Sorry folks, the technology has defeated us, so there won’t be live streaming. I will, however be making all the vids available on YouTube ASAP after the event, and keeping an archive of the Tweets via Storify.
I’m presenting, can I have…..?
Yes (probably). There will be a laptop with PowerPoint & other common software, as well as Apple TV for mirroring your shiny fruity toys.
So, that’s about it so far, Looking forward to seeing you.
