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.

Paul Bacsich and Giles Pepler of Sero were present at a "soiree" for experts in e-learning based in and around Oxford, UK. This was hosted by Pamoja Education and organised in conjunction with the Sero VISCED team. This is likely to have been the final VISCED dissemination event in the project's funded period – unless readers of this website know better! All guests got copies of the Handbook (Volume 1) and the brochure. Pamoja Education  is a virtual school based in Oxford. It offers a wide range of online International Baccalaureate courses and has been under way for three years.

The NTAB’s inaugural meeting has just been hosted by one of the first teaching schools, Sheffield’s Notre Dame High, one of the three schools which will take part in the VISCED pilot project.
