Suitably inspired by the first meeting we now have QR codes everywhere around school ready for inspection / fringe festival next week. My unicyclists refused to perform as they were told they had to wear helmets so instead we have geographical facts about our inspectors. It will either be fun; or a complete disaster...

Hi Sally - would be great to see you at the next meeting. Here is the Flash Meeting homepage from e2bn http://flashmeeting.e2bn.net/ - it has a demo section etc. and I think some help pages so you can probably do a trial through this. Rob :)

No problem on a Mac - it's a Flash based web application. As Rob says, you can test the compatibility of your equipment before the next meeting.

Hi - this sounds like a great idea. I'm a geography teacher in Germany (Twitter: @retemirabile) - Which time zones do the times given above apply to?
