His excellent video can be seen here:

About the TSM Workshop
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the TSM Workshop, and it is not to be missed. Teachers and other professionals from the world of education travel the globe to attend, and this year could be the biggest and best yet.
The event lasts for three days, from Tuesday 12th July until Thursday 14th July (with the option to arrive on the Monday evening). Delegates have the opportunity to attend a whole range of practical, inspirational, hands-on workshops led by world renowned trainers. The workshops are on themes such as Autograph, Excel, Cabri and Tools for the Busy Teacher, and delegates are given plenty of time to try out ideas and develop their skills.
There are also delegate forums, where teachers from all over the world share their ideas, and these forums are chaired by leading lights in the world of education. This year the evening bar sessions will be given by Adrian Oldknow and Conrad Wolfram, and each delegate receives a world class set of free resources to take home and use straight away in the classroom. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the opportunity to have a swim in an Olympic sized swimming pool, and attend Mr Barton’s world famous pub quiz.
