Join us at BETT 2011, Europe's largest education technology fair, 12-15 of January at Olympia, London. If you work in Education and are interested in technology this is one of the "must see" events of the year. We'll be sharing our latest approach to infusing technology into the classroom.
Here are some of the BETT highlights I'll be heading to:
Connected Learning Keynote, Wednesday 1.15pm, Apex room:
Paul Bell, who heads up Dell's global public sector business, will lead a session focused on the future vision of Connected Learning. As well as sharing Dell's new education solutions and sharing education trends we're seeing he will lead a panel session with:
The Dell Stand, Main Hall, Stand B20:
We'll be presenting our connected learning solutions - a series of tools and resources that connects the entire community of students, teachers, administrators and parents to feed the desire to learn and fuel the ambition to succeed. There are two focus areas we'll cover with product demonstrations and with interactive presentations on the stand:
TEDx talks, Wednesday 6pm, Apex Room:
Everybody loves TED talks and this year we're one of the sponsors for the TEDxOrenda on Wednesday January 12. The free tickets were so popular that this event sold out very quickly. There will be 12 great speakers and music and I'll be sharing insights on our Dell Education blog and via Twitter.
TeachMeet, Friday 6.30 pm, Apex Room:
TeachMeet is going to be one of the highlights of the show for me. Dell is one of the sponsors of this year's meet-up where teachers share insights with teachers to inspire classroom practice.
If you've not been to a TeachMeet before here is a great video by @ BrainPOP_UK where Tim & Moby explain how it works:
