In the company of giants but ever so modest ones !!

a Post written 24 hours ago but only had chance to post a day later

The ninth teachmeet

has been and gone and what a night too many great educator stand ups (because that's what it is !) to comment on now but I will over the coming weeks .

Reflecting while on my surprise road trip back to work . A journey consisting of the last train from Glasgow connecting with Edinburgh Sleeper arriving in in Crewe at 5.15 (in seat class rather than sleeper). The final leg of this morning travels 5.45 to Birmingham International(arrive 7.15) from Crewe .

Reflection speakers were stunning as ever but the conversation on table the back channel stuff the twitter the flash meeting and the texting in questions was just stunning .

John Dabro powerful video presentation
Chance conversation with Stephen Heppell and the first ever teachmeet presentation by John Davitt
.Ewan Mcintoshs departure from the teachmeet halfway through (but surely not forever). Forgets the names but just thing about collective creativity of the learners that people show cased .

I felt the whole room was a company of giants but ever so modest ones!!

Teachmeet 10 in the borders looking for a sponsor anybody got any spare cash to sponsor what Ollie Bray described previously as best staff development ever.
