'Talk on the Tyne' TeachMeet

Animate 2 Educate Ltd are delighted to be once more hosting their very own 'TeachMeet-style' event 'Talk on the Tyne - A Night of Geet Canny Teaching Ideas' on the evening of Thursday 7th June 2018.
The event is being held at CAMPUS NORTH (Carlioll Square, Newcastle upon Tyne) and will run from 7:00pm - 11:00pm (arrival and networking between 6:30pm - 7:00pm). The evening will be packed full of wonderful ideas that you can take back to school and use in your own classrooms.
Tickets are FREE, but must be booked in advance as there is a maximum capacity for the room and numbers are also needed for catering.
You can also book your tickets as part of a package with the 'Tech on the Tyne' conference, which is being held the following day, at the nearby Tyneside Cinema.
For those of you not familiar with the TeachMeet concept, the event will be a bit like an open-mike session for musicians, but instead will give speakers from the educational world will have an allocated time to share a good idea that they feel can make a difference in schools.
The evening will also feature a keynote from the inspirational Ruth Fox (@FoxInTheBox05), a Mental Health Ambassador for the FA and the author of 'The Unseen Battle'. Ruth will share her harsh reality of what mental illness can do in a seemingly ideal life and the role that teachers and education played in her story.
There are then 30 slots available for teachers to give a presentation of about 4 minutes in duration, where they share an idea or resource that has had an impact in their class or school.  Not only is this a brilliant CPD opportunity for those in attendance, but also for those who choose to present.
Although Talk on the Tyne is being held on the eve of a Computing conference, there is no requirement for ideas to be computing-based, just simply a good educational idea that you think is worth sharing. The target audience for this event, and therefore for ideas shared is Primary and KS3 from the Secondary sector.
If you are interested in presenting then please e-mail: info@animate2educate.co.uk stating your name, organisation and intended topic for your presentation. Please note that you must book a ticket for Talk on the Tyne to be able to present at this event.
A few carefully selected companies will also be given the opportunity to share ideas about their exciting resources throughout the evening.
For those of you who simply want to come along and enjoy the wonderful ideas that are being shared then please e-mail: info@animate2educate.co.uk or call: 07921 069 489 to book your places.
