"I have seen the Future, and it works"

I wrote my last post, Meetups and Teachmeets, here on bee-it just before the annual BETT Show, and it got a gratifyingly positive response. But I genuinely had no idea that with it I had foreseen the future, and tapped into the zeitgeist.

It is not even 10 o’clock and already there are swathes of educators making the short walk from Customs House DLR Station to the ExCeL Exhibition Centre to see the developments and innovations on display at this year’s Bett. As the gates open, I head on over to my first stand of the day to see what Learnpad have got up their sleeves.

This morning saw the start of Bett 2015, the world’s leading learning technology event. Now in its third year at its new home at London’s ExCeL, visitors were greeted with a new face during the opening keynote speech. With a change of personnel at Whitehall, new Education Secretary Nicky Morgan welcomed visitors, outlining the work that the government have done over the last few years and highlighting what we can expect in the future.

I defy any teacher to go to a Teachmeet and not leave with a springier step and a more cheerful heart. Even if none of the presentations actually addressed one of your immediate classroom needs, just knowing that you are in a community of like-minded souls who are happy to get together and share ideas and advice reassures the educator and raises the spirit.
