#TMStockport 19th November @ Cheadle Heath Primary

What a fantastic night at Cheadle Heath Primary School for #TMStockport! A massive thank you to @MediaShaw for organising! Big thanks to @Gazneedle for his wonderful LIVE doodle notes!

The night kicked off with myself and I shared the recent Kensuke's Kingdom project to demonstrate how iPads should be used to enhance what can be done on paper!

Sarah Lyons then shared how she has been using QR codes in her classroom!

This was followed by Bryn Goodman, who shared all the ways in which he has been using Minecraft to bring the History curriculum alive!

Andy from @IntoFilmFest then shared some of the wonderful ways to use film in the classroom.

@MediaShaw then demonstrated a couple of her favourite apps with Make Dice and Tweetroot! Everyone then enjoyed some lovely hot pot courtesy of Cheadle Heath!

After the break, Alayne Levy treated us to a wonderful demonstration of using iPads to create music with young adults with learning difficulties -

We then were treated to a wonderful video presentation from @ICTEvangalist 

Then had the great Rachel Jones share a video presentation - 

@EllieMMU shared a lovely example of Augmented Reality through Trac Labs Robot! She also made my night with her lovely comments, after I realised she is a parent at my school Davyhulme Primary. 

We were then treated to a demonstration of the super app Plickers by Repa -

Kyle from Primary ICT & Media demonstrated the potential across the whole school using Greenscreen and how accessible it is on an iPad.

Scott Davies discussed the next step in coding club using Project Spark! 

@HGJohn shared some of the blogging projects happening at schools he is working at including - http://secretannexe.mrpablogs.net/

What was amazing was the incredible raffle prizes we had! We had a signed copy of Mark Anderson's 'The Perfect ICT Lesson book,' and some amazing apps up for grabs!

I was astounded at the generosity I received from app developers, some unbelievable apps were shared to all who attended and I don't think anyone went home empty handed!

Here are some of the apps that were raffled off - 

I have used the majority of these apps in the classroom and many I share on my training! Some will be featured in upcoming blog posts and some extra codes will be shared on my facebook page - Facebook.com/ictwithmrp very soon.

Check out the storify of tweets from the event - 

Thanks again to everyone who came, to Cheadle Heath for hosting, all the wonderful presenters including Mark and Rachel who took the time to do video presentations and, of course, Jules Shaw who did a wonderful job organising! Looking forward to the next one...
