Review of BETT show 2013

The annual BETT exhibition in London was held in London from 30 January to 2 February 2013 - both a slight change of time, from earlier in the month, and a significant change of location. It has now moved to from the rather gloomy halls at Olympia to the gleaming new Excel Conference Centre in London's docklands. As always, it was a good barometer of many current developments in ICT in education - both for what was there and what was not there.

Conference in Sweden

Mats Öström from Ross Tensta in Sweden and partner in VISCED took part on May 15/16 in Framtidens lärande, one of the largest conferences in Sweden addressing IT in schools. Mats provided a summary of what for him were the highlights of the conference. During the starting debate of this conference, participants discussed the degree to which we are facing a borderless society. While arguing about the extent to which the school building itself is disappearing, it was generally agreed that society may not yet be ready for the removal of the school building. Recognising the importance of meeting face-to-face, participants also agreed on the importance of the school building for smaller children.
