Introducing CAS Roundup

A while ago I used to attend a weekly Flashmeeting called EdTechRoundup. It was a truly fantastic event, where a host of educational technologists would log on for an hour or so to have a natter about this, that and the other.

Sometimes it was quite heavy pedagogy, sometimes it was sharing a cool new tool or website, sometimes it was thrashing out ideas or sharing experiences.

For the last year or so I’ve been thinking “I really should organise something similar for Computing folk to have a regular chat about whatever irks them or inspires them at that time”. And so, finally(!), I have!

The plan is, as well as the round table discussion format, to start the meeting off with a couple of very short audio-based presentations so that we can podcast the whole thing and allow teachers to download and listen to, initially, 10 – 15 minutes of great idea followed by (if they wish) another hour of interesting and relevant discussion.

At the time of writing, it’s 8pm on a Monday, and the first meeting is running tomorrow – 6:45 for 7pm. There is no signup sheet (although there is an agenda that you can add to if you want) – so all you need to do is turn up.

The agenda is currently sitting at http://casroundup.wikispaces.com/ the resulting podcast will eventually be appearing at http://casroundup.wordpress.com/.

See you there!
