It’s time for BETT again. Despite the tightening belts in UK education it’s still the place to be for everything edtech. Some go to see specific products and services, some to collect free pens, some to network and some to just see what’s new.

For those that want to network, learn and be inspired there are a number of fringe events going on that I would recommend.

In order of date rather than importance and starting with the Learning Without Frontiers Fringe Events rather than the BETT ones…

Sunday 9th January
Mirandamod Unconference LWF, 15:00-17:30, “Why do I need a school now I use mobile technology? …and why do I need a teacher when I have the Internet?”
Teachmeet LWF, 17:30-19:30

I’m yet to decide how many I can make but regrettably it will only be 2 or 3. They are all slightly different, I won’t explain each format or event, take a look at their webpages to find out more. If you go and see me there please say hi!
