BETTer and BETTer!

There is a great buzz abound this year in Olympia. BETT may be the world’s biggest technology in Education show, but I didn’t realise just how much of the world knew that too! It has been so motivating to meet people from all across the globe this week. Sweden, Denmark, and Holland, in particular,seem to have emptied and headed for the show!

When you see so many innovative uses of technology it confirms to me that it really is a glorious time to be alive. The Futurelab speech from Annika Small reiterated that point. The move from a black and white (text based) world to one of colour (the proliferation of uploaded films and online communities) Exciting times that BETT is showcasing.

I think that, nowadays, everyone has the potential to be a Pepys. The difference is that, when Pepys wrote his now famous diary entries, he was not expecting anyone else to read it! I have been surprised at the amount of emails I have received in response to the new blog and the “new-look” website. Thankyou.

Wednesday’s presentation gave me the opportunity to chat to Professor Don Passey, from Lancaster University. An encouraging and perceptive man who seemed genuinely excited by the new direction that the gaming project is taking. I am still not at liberty to divulge too much information but continue to urge you to “Watch this space” over the next few days and weeks.

More tomorrow on what has caught my eye so far.

Mr Hutt, that fine fellow from RM is taking the brave step to go independent. (visit his site at http://eduhutt.wordpress.com/ )

His farewell “Do” was held at a very interesting restaurant complete with entertainment. For more info send money in a brown envelope marked “Blackmail”

    We’re famous! What a lovely picture of our mugs. I would’ve preferred a picture of the belly dance though! Glad you had such a great time at BETT and hope to hear from you soon.
