Here is Ross McGill livestreamed from the CPD #TMLondonBoat.

I filmed half the sessions with a GoPro and professional stream box and half with Periscope and my phone. The Periscope sessions were much clearer.

Here is Ross summing up the session tonight:

Here’s some feedback from the evening – one person even came from Birmingham:

I managed to capture a flavour of the evening – excuse the lighting – this was livestreaming on a moving boat! This discussion was about the dearth of Heads and how long someone should be in Deputy Headship / Assistant Headship and the nature of how schools are run. Pedagogy and admin basically. Fascinating. There were conversations all around the boat just like this.

The evening followed the edcamp model. Everyone asked a question and everyone went to hubs on the choices of themes around the question. Some were 1:1 conversations – others were big group jamborees.

To end this blog – here is one of those – something the DFE might like to use in adverts – these are real teachers talking about their jobs – all the harsh realities in there – the convo was:

“What job satisfaction do you get from your role? Enjoy the responses:

I did capture a number of other conversations in the earlier part of the evening but my sound equipment wasn’t playing ball. You can make out what people are saying but it is very, very clipped. I suspect it was a dodgy connection between the wireless mics and the GoPro. If you are still interested they can be viewed here:


Have a great summer holiday everyone.

See you all on the other side.
