The #21CLTeachMeets for 2016-17 finished last week, with the final event taking place at Cocoon in Hong Kong on 17 May. Thirteen presenters delivered on a diverse range of topics such as creative & divergent thinking through storytelling, creating & exploring with virtual and augmented reality, interactive presentation softwares for young language learners, and many others.
Leigh Thomas from Renaissance College Hong Kong, shared her experience:
“I loved the idea of educators sharing their thoughts about education or sharing what they have done in their classes. I loved that the presentations were at the most 5 minutes so this was a ’snapshot’ of learning. The relaxed atmosphere was also a bonus.”

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our Global TeachMeet Partner – Teamie. Teamie have been long term supporters of 21CLI, and without their support, we wouldn’t be able to run these events so successfully. We’d also like to thank Cocoon for allowing us to use their amazing venue for the HK meetings.
