The February Event 2009
Click here to see the programme and joining instructions given before the event.
We'd like to thank the many people who made this possible: Nick, who coordinated the AS/A2 session, The London Met (- many many thanks to Paul Blagburn of the London Met who gave up his Saturday morning to help things go smoothly and who gave us such useful advice .. and the welcoming team on reception!), Sanako, our corporate sponsors who paid for our coffee & biscuits , Kathryn of CILT, who always supports us and brings useful hand-outs, and the committee for doing all the background organising and welcoming. Thanks in anticipation for Kathleen's work on translating a friendly AGM into text and to Monna for sorting out all the finance!! (And a special award to those who contributed so helpfully to our discussions .. the crème de la crème de la crème!).
But ESPECIALLY we'd like to thank our three fantastic presenters .. what a talented bunch of ALL members! Wendy, Juliet and Rachel are all part of the ALL network of advisors for the New Secondary Curriculum, and all imparted great ideas for making learners' experience more 'compelling'. We are so grateful that they gave up their Saturday mornings (and more including travel!) to come and share with us, and through their hand-outs and weblinks they have made it easy for us to follow up their ideas. Liz advertised ALL NSC opportunities available in the London area. We'll post her suggestions here later.
It would be lovely if people who attended could volunteer to do a short 'write-up' of their impressions, and we can post them here. Also, Gwerfyl made a good suggestions that we could continue to 'share' show we followed things up. Helen suggested that people join the Yahoo mflresources group and share their reactions in posts with the subject title 'ALL London follow up: ....'
Below are a few photos, uploaded in the evening of the event. In due course we will try to make video clips available from the talks, and Helen is especially keen to invite people to visit the ALL London patch in Second Life where we could relax on bean bags and talk about how we have followed things up.
As always, if anyone would rather not be featured on this page, or you don't like the captions ...just let Helen know and she'll remove you / the comment straight away .. she won't ask questions! Also, if you have photos, please mail them to her.
Many many thanks to all three for sharing.
