It's that time again, BETT "The worlds largest education technology event" is held annually at Olympia, London, will indeed attract the world.
Always an exciting and interesting event it's where new educational technology is showcased and established resources revisited, experiences shared and ideas put forward through seminars and presentations and and often significantly the place where the government announce new plans, money and strategies.
Unusually this year my BETT experience started early when I joined the Learning and Technology World Forum 2009 today, taking delegates to schools and other educational establishments using technology successfully to support learning and teaching.
on the opening day January 14th I'll be "guiding" a group of visitors from the conference around the vast exhibition, helping them to get the best out of their day. I'm looking forward to helping them and considering other peoples priorities.
From Thursday I have my own agenda, which definitely included Friday night's Teachmeet event after the show, an informal unconference led by practitioners, not to be missed.
More about my experiences after the event.
