To download this free 83 point guide, go to the BETT Files page on the ICT in Education website. This is ideal if you’re a first-timer as far as BETT is concerned, although even seasoned BETT-goers may find something of interest, such as how to share your or your students’ impressions of BETT.

How to contribute YOUR reflections on BETT 2012

If you or your students would like to write a guest article about BETT for this newsletter and/or the ICT in Education website, please contact me. In addition or instead of that, I’m open to writing guest articles for your blog if you have one.

Review of BETT 2011 – Trends and Reflections

Find out what a number of luminaries of the UK’s educational ICT community thought about BETT last year: what was good, what were the trends being shown? Will this year’s BETT turn out to be very different? Personally, I think 3D will continue to grow, and I’m sure we’ll start to see more in the realm of 3D on phones and ultra-thin computers, and it will be interesting to see how far (assuming I’m right) these find their way into education.
