This is the first time we have hosted such an informal, free event for Teachers, and we are hoping that this something we will do more often in the future.
Please Join us for drinks and canapés (which I think this is a posh word for crisps) and hot topical debate, with a bit of fun thrown in, at the Hilton’s vibrant Cloud 23 bar, that provides 360-degree views of Manchester.
If you have been to a Teachmeet or an unconference like event before, you will have a good idea of what to expect at this event. If you haven’t, then you will enjoy the informal nature of this event.
We are looking for volunteers to speak in the following:-
We will also have some Microsoft minute presentations, from our Innovative Teachers highlighting the great free stuff we have to offer.
What to discuss and present
We are not looking for product demos or examples of work, unless they illustrate your issue or theme. We would like presentations on issues that are relevant to teachers and learners. For example:-
Through such topics we hope to spark debate, conversation and inspire some ideas on how to meet such issues.
How do I sign up for a presentation?
That’s easy, just add your name and presentation topic/theme and presentation type (Mini or Nano) as a comment to this post or email me at email@example.com . Internet access can be intermittent at such venues so be prepared with an alternative, this just adds to the fun. There is no guarantee you will present as presentations will selected at random.
How do I sign up to attend?
If you are looking to attend add your name as a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are attending our UK Innovative Education Forum at the same venue, and staying in Manchester then you are probably already attending, but it wouldn’t hurt to sign up here as well.
You can follow twitter hash tag for this event at #itmeet
We will end the evening with the presentation of awards to this year’s Innovative Teachers, we hope you will join us to celebrate their achievements. There is still time to enter our awards, more details here.
See you there….

Hi PIL Team,
This looks like a great idea! I hope that I'll be able to get there in time in the hire car!
I would like to throw my hat into the ring for a mini-presentation please:
'Guerilla Innovation: does everything really need to be planned?'
Hi PIL team
Really looking forward to being able to join in this event - will try to say "Why our VLE works for us" in 10 minutes!!!!!!!!!
Sounds good. I'll happily do a quick nano on "Pupil Led CPD - Digital Leaders".
I'd like to add a 3 minute presentation into the hat:
How a real audience can add depth to learning.
A 3 minute look at how a Year 6 child's blog post made it round the globe in one night and returned with interest!
Hi :) I'll happily do a 3 minuter if there's still room:
Engaging Girls in Technology
I'd like to attend - no presenting this time, just a fun filled evening watching everyone else hard at work!
I would also like to attend, a fantastic opportunity to network with half of my PLN and be inspired by so many innovative teachers.
I'd like to attend to see if anything new is being done with PSPs and/or DS...
I would like to attend to look at new ideas/ projects which have worked successfully across other organisations/ schools and how we can inspire staff in schools
I'll talk about my new Blogtheolympics project - review the massive success of Blogtheworldcup.net and call for ideas and help to make Blogtheolympics even bigger and better. Could fit it in to 3 mins, but 10 would be better.
I'd like to attend
