Webinar programme

We have kindly been sponsored with the use of Adobe Connect for webinar presentations.  We plan to use teachers to present to sharing ideas they have found useful in their classrooms.  We plan to hold three webinars weekly.

See the webinar programme on our blog - updated on a monthly basis.


TeachMeets are becoming a popular means of professional development for teachers in many countries. In a TeachMeet a teacher gives a three-minute presentation on some way that he/she has introduced successfully technology into their classroom.

SchoolNet has created a TeachMeet wiki for South Africa which is participating in the TeachMeet programmes developing around the country (currently those run by Partners in Learning, South Africa and Elkanah House in the Western Cape). We also involved in TeachMeet International sponsored by Partners in Learning Croatia. We will be holding a monthly virtual,  national TeachMeet as part of our webinar programme for SchoolNet.
