I’ve come up to Chester to the first #TMHistoryIcons today, another variation on the Teachmeet theme.

Get an online space.
There are so many options, including Twitter, Wix, WordPress, Padlet and many more. Give some thought to if you want a one-way ‘publishing’ platform or if you’re looking for interaction with users. If you’re creating videos from your Powerpoints with tools like Office Mix and Explain Everything you could consider creating your own YouTube channel as well.
This tool is a great mix of high and lo- tech. Pupils get print-outs to vote / respond with and you use your device to scan the room.

The School History Project Conference is coming up in July. If you’ve enjoyed today either in person or online and you can make it to Leeds you’d be very welcome. You don’t have to deliver the SHP GCSE to attend or benefit.
