An aspect of Teachmeet that I personally find rewarding are the relationships that are formed with fellow educators.  Secondly, the introduction of various resources and web tool, excites me.  On Saturday night @ShellTerrell mentioned this site which she heard at another teachmeet via @ElindaGjondedaj  You can view my International teachmeet presentation using, below.

Keeping the conversation alive,


  1. You really did have a huge week.

    Didn't get to catch any of the TeachMeet International in real time, so was good to catch yours after the event. You were a great ambassador for Australia, great job!

  2. Dear Jeannette,
    Wow! what a wonderful week of learning. It's great that we have so many different opportunites to connect, to share and to learn from each other. Thanks a lot for everything you do!

  3. Dear Steve,

    Was a fantastic couple of weeks! I enjoyed following and supporting the first #tmbrisbane Teachmeet, you organised! Wonderful to see it eventuate, after you began planning last year.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment too :)
