Over the past 4 years I have been very privileged to be able to attend the BETT Show at the Olympia in London. Again this year I have been invited by the Microsoft team to join them on their stand to help talk about cloud technologies to schools and colleges who are looking for the latest technologies.
Not heard of BETT before? Take a look at the website below.
‘Dedicated to showcasing the best in UK and international educational technology products, resources and best practice, BETT has enabled thousands of practitioners to enhance their knowledge of learning through technology.
Taking place each January at Olympia in London, BETT attracts more than 600 educational suppliers and around 30,000 visitors. It brings together the global teaching and learning community for four days of innovations and inspirations.
BETT is the world’s leading event for educational technology where education professionals can evaluate and purchase a comprehensive range of ICT products and services. From early years to universities, BETT is an indispensable part of the annual knowledge-gathering process, coming at a time when establishments are planning and budgeting for the new school year.’
Entry to BETT is free. Register here.
If you are interested in hearing what will be on the Microsoft stand, take a look at the UK Schools blog post on MSDEN which will give you just a little bit of some of the existing technologies that will be shown including Kinect for Education for the first time.
So what exactly are the Microsoft team showing off at BETT 2012?
