BETT 2008: Closing Thoughts + SharePoint Video


Well BETT 2008 has closed.  Day 4 was very good but also very quiet.  We still filled the stand when we were presenting the Learning Gateway which I am very happy about.

This was my first experience working with Microsoft and I have to say I have had a great time.  The people with in the education team are just great and I also loved the tech guys on the tech desk.  I would like to take this oppertunity to thank Microsoft Education UK for inviting me down and hope to be involved again next year!

During my presentation entitled 'Connected Learning Gateway' we showed how my school has been using SharePoint to connect parents to data. It was shown on BBC TV on Wednesday and we also used it in our presentation.  Click Here to see the video/report in action.

I would like to mention a few names as thanks

Neil – Thanks for inviting me and supporting my school
Leighton – My fellow presenter – thank you so much
Gordon and Ray – Thanks – your great
Eileen – thanks for the presenting tips – Click Here to her blog <– must read

And the rest of you – Thank you so much for a great week.

A few photos

This is the presentation stand – every presentation had this amount of people – amazing to see.

The demo area

The tech desk!

I'll off to rest my feet – still hurt after 4 days of standing on the demo stand.

Updated 22nd January

BETT finished a few weeks ago now but Microsoft have just released all the presentation slides from the 4 days.

Do have a look and see what is going on in education.  Many of you have asked for copies of the presentation and you can find this under Connected Learning Gateway (includes SharePoint screen shots).
