What is TeachMeet? 

For a start, it’s a gathering of people just like you, from schools just like yours, with a shared interest in teaching children with special educational needs and disabilities.

We want to encourage education professionals to share ideas and thoughts for developing support for children and young people with SEN. Presenters will have an allocated time slot to share a good idea or two that they feel can make a positive difference to vulnerable children and young people.

That's what it’s all about: sharing ideas. How we find ways to help learning happen, and how technology helps.

What should I expect? 

TeachMeet offers the opportunity for practitioners to step out of the classroom and (briefly) into the limelight to deliver one of the following presentations:

  • Nano presentation - 3 minutes (for the shy) or,
  • Micro presentation - 7 minutes (for those with a lot to say)

Alternatively, just chat with the people around you! It’s an opportunity to meet other people facing the same challenges as you do. Find out about their different devices and approaches, and their tips and tricks.

And it’s a lot of fun, with pizza, beer and soft drinks provided.

The only rule is, ‘No selling.’ We’re happy to hear about how different products have changed practice. But it is the practice we want to hear about.

How do I present? 

If you wish to present, please register for TeachMeet as part of the show's main registration process and check either 'Nano' or 'Micro' presentation when prompted. If you require any extra assistance, please contact Rebekah Marnell at rebekah.marnell@markallengroup.com.
