TeachMeets in Hong Kong

This week was an exciting time of edtech learning and sharing at TeachMeets which was organized by 21st Century Learning International. TeachMeets are an organised but informal meeting (in the style of an unconference) for teachers to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights in teaching with technology (TeachMeets).


So what did we learn? There where some amazing teachers that had a real passion for education and technology interrogation!

There where many great applications shared like NearPod and SoundCloud  and I even got to test drive a  GoogleGlass thanks to +Stu Lowe!

Connected Classrooms on Google +

Google + is a great way to bring the world into your classroom, there are many “virtual field trips” (VFT) planned and some really cool events like “Dogsledding Through Glass With The Wilderness Classroom”

Using Google + you are able to arrange a ‘HangOut ‘ with other classrooms allowing your students to ask questions and connect from anywhere in the world! Looking for a class in Hong Kong to say hello? Send me message to +StephenHesketh
