TeachMeet Bolton

This morning I put my name forward for TeachMeet Bolton on the 23rd Novemeber 2012. I have not come across this network before, but really like the concept behind it:
"TeachMeets are FREE, informal "unconferences", all about creating opportunities for those interested in education to take the lead, share practice, discover new ideas, network and be inspired all during the course of one CPD fuelled evening! Anyone can get involved, share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. All are welcome."

"You can talk about anything that has inspired you, has worked well in class, a tool, a strategy, a topic... The list is endless. The one rule here is NO SELLING! Let's also agree not to cause any PowerPoint induced comas and remember technology may not always be your friend... REMEMBER: You do not have to present anything, you can always be an Enthusiastic Lurker!"
I'm currently undecided about whether to present or simply be one of the audience. I might look to do something around reviving mindmapping in schools - any ideas or opinions on mindmapping would be appreciated. Simply leave a comment...
