TeachMeet Brum #tmbrum

This evening saw teachers and educational tweeters descend on Paganel Primary School at the invitation of Steve Philps for TeachMeet Brum.

As ever, there were a range of presentations from demonstrations of exciting tools for the classroom, to sharing of successful projects with learners of many ages.

I was live blogging and live streaming the event, with the resulting posts below:
