2018 is almost over, which means that Bett 2019 is fast-approaching! Taking place from January 23-26, 2019 at the London ExCel exhibition centre, Bett is the world’s largest annual education technology trade show, and we've got loads of exciting things planned. Here are a few reasons why you should visit us on stand C200.
Whether you’re looking for ideas for your maker space, advice on how to implement our learning by making philosophy in your classroom, find out more about pi-top, or just meet the lovely team, make sure to stop by stand C200 to experience pi-top's maker platform.
pi-top Learning by Making Fringe Event
At ISTE 2018 in Chicago we kickstarted our Learning by Making events for educators and makers, and now we're organising another one in this side of the pond. Expect some drinks, great company and thought-provoking talks by some of the biggest names in the learning by making movement. There are a limited number of spaces available, so sign up now to secure your space.
Date, time and address
23 January, 6pm, The Bett Arena, Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL
"Most classrooms have been constructed to be cloistered and controllable, ignoring the tangled webs our minds have evolved into specifically to engage ‘wicked' problems, like climate change. The isolation and linearity of much teaching has been threatened by technologies that enable students to connect to information and people not previously possible which has led to teacher frustration and confusion."
With a humorous and non-technical approach pi-top's Director of Learning and Research, Dr William Rankin, will explore in his talk 'Fusion skills, not fission skills: shaping a new generation of learning' ways to reimagine teaching and learning to offer a new way to chart the path for education. Join us at The Bett Arena at 14.00 on Friday, 25th of January.
Educator Allen Tsui will also share his experience as an Academic Enrichment Programme Leader at Willow Brook Primary School Academy (London, UK). Come and hear on the 23rd of January at 11.15 (The Bett Arena) how the school has exceeded the demands of the “new” National Curriculum, particularly in computing, becoming accredited as a computing and STEM-based learning Centre of Excellence, and what tools the students use in the classroom, including pi-top.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we'll see you at Bett!
