Teach Meet 06
Teachers like to blog too it seems. And with all that rain in Scotland, Scottish teachers like Ewan McIntosh need to more than most!
Armed with umbrellas and waterproof jackets, Educators, Administrators and Live Web folk from around Scotland & Europe (inc. one woman who flew in all the way from New York), managed to make it to meet face to face at TeachMeet 06 in Glasgow.
Apparently the wine really helped the creativity flow (always good if the wine can be functional as well as delicious). In fact they were all so inspired and came up with such good ideas at this event that the National Education Department (who attended along with the schools inspectors) decided they want to make it part of the main education festival of the year.
Never considered that wine could help you get a good education before. How cool. Now there's an idea...

Thanks for supporting our meeting. The wine is/was absolutely superb, especially the Shiraz.
I worked in Oddbins for the best part of 10 years and I can honestly say that Stormhoek is the finest South African Shiraz I've tasted! It's certainly made my 'to buy' list.
