So it's a bit like an online conference ten Tony ;-)

Just kidding! Great work on this Tony and I'll be looking forward to Thursday. I would also encourage others to join in - even if it's just to listen. The energizing effect of just chatting to like minded individuals is fantastic.

A great idea, really looking forward to it. Dead simple to get involved and only basic kit needed (I have a really cheap webcam, which seems to do the job fine). Relaxed atmosphere... bring your own wine (it is thirsty Thursday!)

Like other members- I am a novice at this and I think it will be way over my head too. But am prepared to give this interesting concept a go.
Glass of wine in hand and will be ready to go for 'Thirsty Thursday'
BTW Thanks for the great idea.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for the positive feedback and to the people who have already requested access to the Wiki.

I'm sorry if I made the first post of the thread seem complicated  ??? , my fault.  :-[

Please don't feel it's above your head, it isn't- I can cope with it  :). A web address will be given- you sign in and sorted... if there are any technical issues we can help each other out. It's part of the fun.

Please also feel welcome to attend, whether you want to contribute, listen or watch. Whether new teacher, experienced teacher, HOD, etc...

Hopefully this will develop into a community event, so please feel free to change the agenda and make meeting suggestions.

For the people who are thinking that this sounds like it is "over their heads", there is a demo facility on the flashmeet site.  As well as allowing you to test your webcam/microphone, it lets you see what the flashmeet willl look like, and hovering over various different features (eg the chat, broadcast button, etc.) brings up a box telling you what that feature does.  It is dead straightforward and will be well worth coming along, even if it's as a "lurker" at first!

Good idea Littlemiss, when you do a demo it is private... so you can mess around with the application without fear.

Door still open...

I've had a play with my aged webcam and discovered it works best in a retort stand borowed form the science department.  The demo mode is quite good fun, sond tomorrow ...

As it's being recorded does that mean we all have to get dressed up?
Looking forward to it - webcam is working and the wine is in the fridge!
