BETT – Teachmeet Takeover and Kidsmeet Takeover
Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 | Author:

This post is just to announce that the wiki pages for Teachmeet Takeover and Kidsmeet Takeover at BETT2013 are now live.

If you are unaware, a Takeover is where a company gives up part of their stand for 30 minutes so that a teacher or group of children, can share some ideas about anything. This is usually a free tool or idea and it should be something that can be easily replicated in the classroom.

For example, last year two of my children discussed Popplet on the Scholastic stand and then I talked about 5 cool web 2.0 tools on the Rising Stars stand. It can be anything that you have used or tried in your classroom. A good way to approach this is get someone to share a 30minute timeslot with.

So what do we need? Well we need two things. Firstly we need people willing to present and secondly we need companies willing to share their stand with the presenters, If you are one of those, then click the links below and sign-up on the Wiki.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

PS: Yes, there is a Teachmeet on the Friday of BETT and no, details aren’t all sorted yet!
