BETT-er than ever…

| January 11, 2010 | 0 Comments 

Useful Pickie 149BETT this week, and, in some ways, the highlight of our year.

Sarah and I are busy folks, popping up here and there through the week.

Floella BenjaminI am doing 4 presentations about The National Schools Film and Animation Awards at the BLI stand (C50) (Wednesday 13:55 Thursday 11:35 Friday 12:45 Saturday 12:10)

I am then off to present at an Apple event on Thursday afternoon.

Also taking part in the BESA Keynote – ‘Breaking the Bonds of Learning’ 12:30-13:30 on Wednesday.

Myself,  Professor Angela McFarlane, Professor Stephen Heppell and Max Wainewright from 2Simple, will be resonding to a question raised by Merlin John: “If you think of education as an obstacle course that takes out an unacceptably high percentage of learners from every generation, which obstacles should be removed so that everyone gets a good run at learning”?

Look out for Sarah on the Mimio stand throughout the show.

The other main highlights, for us, are the eagerly anticipated “teacher-led” happenings:

An interesting and diverse collection of speakers.

Useful Pickie 150Thursday 14th January 2010 – AmpEd (Amplified event)

The chance to engage in some contentious discussion.
