BETT is the world’s largest educational technology event. Use this site to find products and suppliers, and discover the latest ways to use technology for teaching and learning.
and this year, with all of the latest technology being released in October and other new stuff on it’s way in, should be no different. Let’s have a look at some of the stuff that’s actually on offer there in London…
- Kathryn Furness from Monkseaton will be talking about how they use OneNote to aid collaborative learning
- Alex Pearce, who used to be ICT manager at Great Barr School, is going to show us some of things he’s found in the beta version of SharePoint 2010
- Simon Brennand, from Philip Morant School in Essex, is going to talk about Windows 7 and share some of things he’s learnt while using it
- Mike Herrity, from Twynham School in Dorset, is going tell stories too – about how they’ve created a Learning Gateway that’s doing everything from connecting parents to easing the KS4 Options process
- Guy Shearer, Principal from Lodge Park Technology College, will be talking about their choice to use Live@edu for their students – to reduce the cost of their email service, as well as enhancing the collaboration options available to staff and students.
So, let’s look at that from a business perspective…Office 2010 on showcase, Windows 7 in action and schools taking it up, BPOS (live@edu) in practice…. That’s definitely a conference I wouldn’t mind visiting…More info can be found over on Microsoft’s UK School’s Learning blog:
