By teachers for teachers. .

Fabulous! Up in Glasgow to do a mass of interesting things including a keynote at the Scottish Learning Festival. This huge event (7,000+ teachers!!) has a Fringe Festival too and so here we all are at a wonderful fringe Geekfest.

The rules are simple: everyone arrives with (or has hurriedly created!) a 7 min presentatlon on something cool and learning related that they have tried / are trying for real in their schools. A random "one arm bandit" name selector chooses who presents. Currently I am listening to 7 fascinating mins on Google Map mashups by Ollie Bray. All by teachers for teachers, and all fab.

Oh, and free beer, crisps, stuff.

Glad you enjoyed my 7 minute tour of Google Maps's Stephen! I will be in contact soon to find out more about the Prof.D programme that you talked about in your keynote. We are a school committed to building a learning community and I think your project will provide us with an interesting extension to the CPD opportunities that we are currently offering our staff. Happy Sailing! Ollie
