Headteacher Magazine, guide to services and products for UK Schools
Bett 2018 is a celebration of education and the role it plays in helping students prepare for the future. With popular predictions stating that many of the jobs that today’s children will do don’t even exist yet, the role of education is more important than ever before, and technology and innovation are key factors in helping us all to meet the challenges of the future.
Inspiring stories from teachers are at the heart of Bett 2018 for a good reason. The community that has built around Bett over the years help to bring technology and its role in the classroom to life and Bett 2018’s aim is to share these stories so that teachers have practical tools and insight to help transform education. Key topics such as creative teaching, the primary computing curriculum, e-safety, data driven tech, assessment and budgets are covered in streamlined content developed to help visitors make the most of their time at the show. Meanwhile, to address the issue of demand, Bett Arena content will be screened around the show so that visitors can access headline content no matter where they are.
Over 850 suppliers will be showcasing their latest products across four days at Bett 2018, offering visitors the opportunity to touch, test and evaluate solutions. Being able to get to grips with products and demonstrate their value is perhaps one of the most crucial features of Bett and to help visitors explore the practicalities of working with technology, the Solutions Den will be demystifying some of the latest tech developments for teachers. Alongside the leading technology firms and education resource suppliers, Bett Futures returns again to help visitors discover some of the boldest and most inventive products that look set to be game changers in education. Meanwhile the STEAM Village emphasises the role that creativity and the arts play in STEM education, helping teachers to keep up with the growing demand for skills that will form a crucial part of our future.
Bett’s mission is to bring together people, ideas, practices and technologies so that educators and learners can fulfil their potential. Focusing on content and products sure to change the game, now and in the future, helps to support the community of educators and innovators that attend each year and it’s the commitment, innovation and dedication from educators that makes the biggest difference to pupils. After all, if the human resource is the single most important factor in meeting the demands of the future, that makes teachers one of the most vital tools in our society.
Bett 2018 will run over four days, from 24 to 27 January 2018 at ExCeL, London. For more information, to find out more about the programme of content and to register for your free pass, visit: www.bettshow.com
