Social learning... tonight, next week, and in November.....

Tonight is our monthly social (6pm onwards).  The venue -- appropriately called "The Library" -- is a new one for us.  And it does sound interesting.  A review of it on TimeOut Singapore says you need a password to swing the bookshelves open -- to reveal a dimly lit bar with playful cocktails!  I can't attend, but look forward to hearing how it is.

The Library at 47 Keong Saik Road

Telephone 6221 8338

Next Thursday there's another opportunity for us to get together -- in a bigger group -- for digital learning at the Teach-Meet, Thursday, Oct. 9th at Zsofi Tapas Bar, 68 Dunlop Street (Little India) -- 5:30 to 8:00 pm.

Go to to register -- especially if you want to present.  The format is a series of Nano-presentations lasting 2 mins or Micro-presentations lasting 7 mins -- by local/international teachers.

I have registered to attend and just got a notification saying these are the presentations lined up for next week:
  • Learning Group Leader
  • Learning blogs and standards
  • Blended PD For staff
  • Spreadsheets are the calculators of the 21st Century
  • Creativity
  • Tell Me with a Graphic
  • Lo Mo Learner profile
  • Using Time Lapse in the Classroom
  • Using online math tools to rethink the way we teach 
Next time maybe I'll get around to signing up to present something.  This time I'll sit back and enjoy.

Fri-Sat, November 21-22 is a two-day School Librarian Connection collaborative initiative in Hong Kong, which I'm helping Dianne McKenzie organize.  As for the Teach-Meets, you can choose the mode and duration of whatever you want to share, if anything.  Mini, macro, nano, or even just a digital post presentation.

Click here to see the programme so far.  It's reasonably priced at SGD$130.  And less if you only want to attend one day.
