#TMLondon – #Outstanding #CPD for teachers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The following video is a small 6-minute capture of #TMLondon at @WalthamstowAcad-emy on 27th February 2013. The event was organised by myself & @Kafilat_Agboola (AVP for CPD at Walthamstow); who was actually attending her first ever TeachMeet (also as a host)! Thank you, as ever goes to @MrLockyer who helped me co-host the actual event on the evening…and to all our wonderful sponsors who provided a great range of freebies!



Thank you to @ActionJackson of @TheFixUpTeam for videoing this event and putting the content together; including a thank you – as ever – to Leon Cych (@EyeBeams) for all the live audio streaming that he produces time and time again, for free to ensure everybody can tune in, live during the events; but also re-visit audio sound-bytes later. You can find Leon’s content here.

I’m sure most of you who are reading this, will know all there is to say about TeachMeets.

If you do, then please share this video archive (as evidence) to all the teachers at your own school.

If you don’t know what a TeachMeet is, then read here and get involved.

For all TeachMeets organised throughout the country, the main holding page is here.

If you would like to organise your own TeachMeet event, I have a simple ‘what to do’ list here.

Introducing TeachMeetTV:


One final note. After various discussions with a few Twitter-colleagues, @Edutronic_Net has started up TeachMeetTV to archive all TeachMeet footage. Take a look – I’m sure there will be something there to inspire you, or share with a colleague.


In 2010, Ross Morrison McGill founded @TeacherToolkit from a simple Twitter account in which he rapidly became the 'most followed teacher on social media in the UK'. In 2015, he was nominated for '500 Most Influential People in Britain' in The Sunday Times as one of the most influential in the field of education - he remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day ... Sharing online as @TeacherToolkit, he rebuilt this website (c2008) into what you are now reading, as one of the 'most influential blogs on education in the UK', winning the number one spot at the UK Blog Awards (2018). Today, he is currently a PGCE tutor and is researching 'social media and its influence on education policy' for his EdD at Cambridge University. In 1993, he started teaching and is an experienced school leader working in some of the toughest schools in London. He is also a former Teaching Awards winner for 'Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, London' (2004) and has written several books on teaching (2013-2018). Read more...
