The last TeachMeet at a Scratch Conference was a cracker, curated and MC’d by the inimitable Drew Buddie in Der Waag building as part of the unconference for #Scratch2015AMD. Following on the warm reception TeachMeet got from Scratch conference goers, there will be a second TeachMeet Scratch as part of the Bordeaux unconference in July.


This time the venue is as lovely – the Marché Des Douves is a converted market hall, used by the community for social and educational events.

TeachMeet is an open, free, informal and social event, organised by volunteers who wish to share ideas with each other. To get a feel for what goes on, have a look and a listen here.

If you are going to the Scratch Conference in Bordeaux this July, do not miss the TeachMeet – see you there.



“Pimp My Badge”

TeachMeet Froebel took place last evening in the gorgeous new Education Building at Maynooth University. The best thing about TeachMeet Froebel is the two way stream between student teachers and practicing teachers – both sets learn from each other.
Great work by final year student Laura O’Donoghue and her team, they were a shining credit to Seamie O’Neill and the Froebel Dept. It was a fantastic evening of ideas, chatter, action, challenges and showcase. The energy and action is well visible in the Twitter timeline for #tmFroebel 

Details of speakers and topics is at the TeachMeet Froebel wiki pages, and the shared presentations have been made available here.


Great venue, great hostess with the mostess Laura
