Something big is afoot! Get out your phone/diary/post it note and save the date, Saturday 11th November will see the second #PedagooMuckle event take place in Levenmouth Academy

There is plenty of parking at the campus or you can travel by train and bus, the nearest station is either Markinch or Kirkcaldy How about trying a car share? If you are struggling to get transport please contact us or put a shout out on Twitter and we will see what we can do.

Last year educators from across Scotland came together to share what they do, you can see what we all got up to here

Why Muckle?
Pedagoo and TeachMeet are grassroots, not for profit movements that are for teachers by teachers. They aim to encourage educators to learn from each other and share what goes on in real classrooms everyday.

Supported by SCEL  #PedagooMuckle aims to support, challenge and encourage participants to go forth and organise their own Pedagoo events, TeachMeets and other collaborative, sharing opportunities for educators.

We are using the Scots word ‘muckle’ because we are hoping the event will have a BIG impact on teachers across Scotland, motivating and supporting them to take a risk and lead an event in the next year.

Across the day there will be a wide range of learning conversations and a Muckle TeachMeet.

At the end of the day everyone will be asked to make a #PedagooPledge, a promise to get involved in leading or attending an event within the next year.

Our programme is still to be confirmed but the timings will be 10am – 4pm.

Sounds inspiring – how can I sign up?

Attendance at this event will be free but sign up via eventbrite is essential. 

You can sign up to attend here

 

Sounds inspiring – I’d like to lead a learning conversation, how do I do that?

Pedagoo events rely on educators being willing to share what they do in a supportive environment.  

Anyone can submit a learning conversation – if it’s something you’ve tried out in your classroom or school then others will want to hear about it. Learning conversations are forty minutes in length, you are encouraged to share your practice for 20 minutes and then lead a discussion for the remainder of your time. Use of powerpoint is discouraged we’re after conversations, not presentations. You’ll also get a chance to attend other people’s conversations.

Go on! You know you want to, groups tend to be maximum 12 people, everyone is there because they want to learn from each other and find out how to improve their practice.  If you’re keen to give it a go, sign up now using the form below.
