It’s that time of year again. We’re back at BETT, with a big presence and a boatload of exciting and engaging things for visitors to experience on Stand C90.

We’re doing things a little different this year, creating experiential zones for people to get hands on with loads of exciting stuff and learn more about some of the fresh and innovative ways we’re helping to improve the education of people in the UK through technology services.

Here’s a round-up of what you’ll be able to see and experience in our zones:

 

PLAY

Featuring the latest touch screen learning devices, Play is where you come to make, create and laugh.

With a range of augmented reality experiences, DIY controller action courtesy of MakeyMakey (this needs to be done), and loads more fun activities to take part in – it’s where experimental minds young and old will come together to let off some steam after a tough day trawling the hall.

 

LEARN

Boasting 15 minute technology-enriched lessons on the hour and half-hour from innovative and thought provoking teachers on a range of subjects, from Geography to Maths, our Learn zone is going to be rammed to the rafters full of riveting CPD.

Each lesson will be tailored to the audience to make it as rewarding as possible, with Lesson-in-Bag giveaways available for free at the end of each session, giving you the chance to run your own session in the classroom using the new tools and techniques you’ve worked with.

We’re also privileged to have David Brown, Ofsted Lead for Computing and Online Safety, as a BETT stand exclusive for 2016. With the new ‘Inspecting safeguarding in early years, education and skills’ guidance issued in September 2015, David’s talk will give you the chance to get the inside scoop on everything to do with Computing and digital safeguarding, helping to ensure that your school is doing everything it can to empower and care for your community.

SHOW

BETT 2016 is significant for us, as it will be the most technology services we’ve ever unveiled at the show! With 5 new products designed specifically for schools to showcase, in addition to new 2016 device releases from some of the world’s leading technology vendors, stopping by the Show section of our stand is something to seriously consider.

 

INCLUDE

Technology is for all of us and we want to bring inclusion to the forefront of BETT conversations. In partnership with Family Fund, the leading UK charity for families raising disabled or seriously ill children, we’ve created a zone that highlights some innovative ways we can enable the best personalised learning experience for all pupils. Boasting some of the latest edtech out of Silicon Valley start-ups, visiting the Include zone will be a must for anyone passionate about making a difference in teaching and learning.
