TeachMeet began in Edinburgh in 2006, when edubloggers Ewan McIntosh, John Johnston, and David Noble arranged to meet and share tech-in-ed ideas. The idea spread quickly, becoming a popular unconference adjunct to large formal conferences in particular the Scottish Learning Festival and BETT. It is now a global phenomenon, one of a growing number of participatory professional learning models. TeachMeet came to Ireland in 2009 as an unconference prequel to the annual conference of CESI, the Computers in Education Society of Ireland. By April 2021, there have been over 200 Irish TeachMeets across the island, some standalone and some attached to formal conferences.


Welcome to the (new*) TeachMeet wiki for Ireland

* The previous wiki space, created by John Heffernan of www.cesi.ie in 2009, was closed by the host on July 31 2018. As much data as possible was archived and can be found in the Original Wiki Archive Data folder.


All participants in the TeachMeet community in Ireland are welcome to grab a space here and use it to share their TeachMeet information. Join the wiki, make a page and folder for your event, add yourself to the list of organisers in Ireland. After your TeachMeet, add summary details to the list of TeachMeet events in Ireland.
