Notes from meeting[edit]

Spent most of the time telling each other a bit about ourselves.

PeterT highlighted the importance of avoiding putting waffle into the site - we don't want teachers reading it to think that the authors don't know what they are talking about. Four ways to avoid this:

  • Read about the subject and provide summaries (i.e summaries from people who are 'expert'
  • Interview people who are 'expert'
  • Ask questions - a good way to encourage other people to contribute to the site
  • Focus on areas which are within your expertise/experience

PeterT also flagged up the importance of not 'marketing' or promoting products/services. So avoid saying 'This is the best ...'. You can express a personal opinion - but needs to be clear that is what you are doing - and you need to have personal experience/knowledge of the thing in order to do this.

We agreed that face to face meetings were much more productive than online ones ... which creates a challenge for us as some folk are not within travelling distance of MK.
