Teachmeet

Teachmeet is a forum which uses Twitter for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) based on the simple concept “for teachers, by teachers” and enables teachers to come together to share good practice. Whilst some of the sharing is technology based there are many examples of non-technology good practice. The set-up of Teachmeet provides a valuable opportunity to build professional networks outside our normal systems allowing teachers to take ownership of their own CPD. In addition the group host #niedchat (follow @niedchat) every Wednesday evening during term time (8.30-9.30pm). This is used as discussion forum to address issues facing education in NI. Two teachers from Integrated Primary Schools are also involved in the organisation of events for Teachmeet members, they are Heather Watson from Phoenix IPS and Barry Corrigan from Millennium IPS.
