TeachMeet Brisbane - What works in Education?


Today I'm presenting at a TeachMeet session being held at QUT Kelvin Grove. I haven't come across TeachMeet before but the concept really interests me - educators interested in education talking about education and networking and meeting new people.

Essentially...it's all about collaboration.

The topic for the TeachMeet session is "What works in education?" The answer for me was quite simple - collaboration.

When we collaborate we get more done. We find out new things. We learn from each other. We work as a team, and aren't isolated. We make networks. We get outside our comfort zone.

I started to think about all of the things that I do to collaborate with educators outside of my workplace through Twitter, Pinterest, the Learning Place, blogs, YouTube etc and realised that without planning to, I have created my own Personal Learning Network (PLN). My ideas and strategies that I have for developing as a teacher and working with my students are better because I am looking for new ways to do things, because I am willing to be open-minded and see what is out there.

So...I came up with this infographic. This is how I see collaboration. Why I think it's important and how we can do it.

What do you think about collaboration? Leave me a comment and share your ideas.

This infographic was created using Piktochart.
