This afternoon at the 2015 ISTE Conference in Philadelphia, I interviewed Kyle Calderwood (@kcalderw) and Ben Hartman (@techcoachben) about the first “TeachMeet” event held this year at the conference. Check out the Twitter hashtag #TMISTE15 to see some of the shared learning from today’s event. Both Kyle and Ben discussed what is unique about the TeachMeet model and how it is different than EdCamp. Both models focus on teachers sharing ideas, but TeachMeets generally have a fixed schedule of shorter presentations, while EdCamps have longer discussion sessions and is more democratically organized. The combined interview video (lightly edited with iMovie for iOS, and uploaded with YouTube Capture) is just under 4 minutes long.
