Planned by students, organised by students and presented by students, our TeachMeet is an opportunity for you to swap ideas and be inspired by others. Our TeachMeet is unique and, as far as few know, a first as all aspects will be run by students. The views of inspirational students on the education system will be presented. Hopefully meaning that refreshing and new ideas will be presented giving a different perspective on education.

The meeting will be held on Thursday 28th June from 16.30-18.30 at Fulford School in York with an interval where refreshments will be available. Anyone involved in education is welcome to come along to soak up all the enthusiasm and great ideas that will hopefully be generated. Audience members are welcome from 16:00 however please do not arrive before 3:45 due to bus departure from the school.

    Well done Fulford DL’s..looking forward to our Skype session on Monday and I am looking forward to being there on 28th June….

  11. #11 by Bob Harrison on March 12, 2012 - 2:20 pm

    It was good to talk to you today….it seems like you have everything under control?

    This is such a brilliant idea……I think you should contact Radio York and Yorkshire TV a little nearer the time.

    I think you need a communications strategy? Who wants to take up that job? The challenge is reaching the people(teachers and schools) who do not use social networking and digital technologies and do not realise how powerful they can be in enhancing learning.

    I know that this is not the case at your school but a majority of secondary school pupils still spend the majority of time in class either listening to a teacher speak or copying from a book or board. How can we get our message across to them?

    My Toshiba colleague is dawn.whittaker@toshiba.co.uk and I suggest you email her and ask how she could help,especially with Skipton High?

    I have put 1-30pm on 14th May in my diary for our next Skype session?

    Hi Fulford Digital Leaders.I wonder if Mt Jackson and your other teachers might be interested in this latest study:

    Their literature review involved looking at thousands of studies and comparing achievement in classrooms that used computer technology with those that used little or none.

    The 40-year retrospective study, published in the Review of Educational Research journal, concluded that in classrooms where computer technology was used to support teaching, it had a “small to moderate positive” impact on learning and attitude.

    Perhaps you will like this CBS interview with Sal Khan? I bet your maths and science teachers will?

    Wow, very inspirational. I am working with a secondary school for a while, I will definately share what you are doing with them.

    Good luck xx

    Hi Fulford Digital Leaders..thought I would share this with you?

    Two Digital Leaders from Stretford High School,Trafford, have been
    invited to join the panel of the closing ceremony of the European E-
    Skills week in Copenhagen on 30th March.

    Dan Stucke,Assistant Headteacher, and one of the pilot schools,with
    Kristian Still at Hamble College Toshiba supported is delighted:

    “This is a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to explain what
    digital leaders do to the European Commisioners and Industry,not to
    mention enjoy a visit to Copenhagen”

    Bob Harrison,Education Adviser at Toshiba, who will also accompany Dan
    and the pupils said:

    ” Of all the things I have done in over 40yrs in Education the Digital
    Leaders initiative stands out. I am proud of the work of the growing
    network of Digital Leaders and I am sure the Stretford High pupils
    will do a great job representing the whole DL movement”

    In helping me fire up colleagues and students at our school about the amazing things digital leaders do, would any of you guys be available for a brief interview … or two? Either vid. or audio?

  25. #25 by Ethan Redmond on June 26, 2012 - 12:56 pm

    Hi ianinsheffield. Sounds brill. Would you be able to email fulforddl@gmail.com? To talk about it.

  26. #26 by ffangzh.blogspot.com on May 17, 2013 - 10:31 am

    A fellow blogger here, found your site via e107, and I have
    a piece of advice: write more. Literally, it feels as though you relied on the clip to make your point.
    It’s evident you know your stuff, so why not use your knowledge to write something more significant and leave the video as something secondary (if there at all)?

  27. #27 by Steve Waters: Secondary Consultant and Training on June 23, 2013 - 10:49 am

    A brilliant example of what students can achieve in promoting learning and teaching in technology. Well done, Fulford!
