What is this all about?

#PedagooPlymouth is on. Building on the success of Pedagoo’s many events, #PedagooPlymouth will provide a collaborative, dialogue-based professional learning experience to any and all teachers in the Plymouth area who wish to attend, supported by ongoing learning throughout the year on Attendance at this event will be free! This event is part of #PedagooLocal TakeOver 2015.

#PedagooPlymouth is kindly supported by Plymouth Teaching School Alliance


What’s a PedagooLocal event?

Pedagoo events are TeachMeets with a difference. They’re all about teachers coming together to share their practice, but we take a longer format approach to this sharing. Larger Pedagoo events are run by the PedagooCurator team, but any teacher can run a PedagooLocal event for their local area as long as they can agree to the vision outlined here. PedagooLocal events are supported by, but not organised by, Pedagoo.

When and where will it be?

#PedagooPlymouth will take place from 10.00am to 2.30pm on Saturday 26th September 2015 at Tor Bridge High, Miller Way, Estover, Plymouth.

What will it look like?

Pedagoo events take a workshop rather than a presentation approach. To reflect this and encourage discusion we are asking teachers to “lead a learning conversation”. We first ask teachers to sign up to lead a conversation and then we’ll open the event to everyone else and you can then choose which conversations you would like to join in with.

In true Pedagoo-style this will not be a series of lectures but a day of conversations in which everyone is encouraged to get involved. Active not passive.

Nothing you fancy?! Why not run your own learning conversation?

We invite any teachers / support staff  to sign up to share their own practice in the form of a ‘Learning Conversation’. This could be something you’ve tried out, or are currently trying out, in your classroom. Your ‘Learning Conversation’ will last thirty minutes and we would recommend that you use this time to share your practice for approximately fifteen minutes and then lead a conversation on this practice with the group for the remaining fifteen minutes. Don’t worry if you’ve never presented at an event like this before, if it’s worked for you and your learners, then it will be worth sharing – go for it! The use of PowerPoint is discouraged in Learning Conversations – we’d really like you to simply talk, share & discuss.

We are particularly looking to recruit more Primary, Early Years, and alternative provision colleagues.

If you’re up for this, fill out the following form. If you want to have a chat about it – please contact me Nina Elliott

Keep it all together!
