BETT 2011: Teachmeet Takeover

The main educational technology show of the year, BETT, is fast approaching. The two halls of Olympia  in London will be full of an incredible array of educational suppliers, educational consultants, teachers and school ict technicians. If you get the chance to attend. And not just for the free pens.

Like last year, the Teachmeet movement is making it’s way onto the floor with another Teachmeet Takeover. Various companies are kindly giving up some space and time on their stands to teachers to talk about their passion. There are still slots available for speakers if you want to get involved, and still space for companies to get inolved too. If you want more information, go check out the TeachMeet Takeover wiki.

I was only an observer last year. But this year I am going to give a talk as part of the Teachmeet Takeover. IRIS Connect have very kindly given up half an hour on their stand on Thursday 13th Jan at 3pm. I’ll be talking about some of the best places to get (free) digital resources for use on your Interactive Whiteboard. So if you are at BETT on the Thursday, please make your way over to Stand K15 around 3pm and say Hello!

There’s some other great things taking place on the evening of BETT 2011 again, like last year. More about those to follow.

  1. I’m wondering what the US equivalent is for the BETT in London. Do you know this? Thanks in advance.


  2. Hi Rutger, the nearest equivalent I think is the ISTE conference (formerly NECC)

    If any of my US readers can recommend any other shows please post them here
