#movemeon is a crowdsourced book offering a diverse collection of tips and ideas for both new and experienced teachers to help them develop their practice and improve the learning in their classroom.
Edited by Doug Belshaw (@dajbelshaw), it was created and developed via a Twitter discussion that he kicked off in a blog post on 19th November 2009. The discussion very quickly took to life and I (@jamesmichie), along with many other educators, made a significant contribution to the ideas within the book.
Doug collated the tweets, cleaned them up and broke them down into 9 sections including activities, environment, feedback, organisation and technology. Here is an example of one the many tweets I contributed to the book:
This was a really great project to be involved with. An overview of the book can be found here which includes a complete list of available formats and a collection of badges that can be downloaded to help promote the book.
There is a dedicated wiki for the project here.
And an archive of all #movemeon tweets here.
