5 Bett Takeaways

■ New venue: This was the most obvious improvement of Bett this year.
The two crammed halls in the west of London have been superseded by
one vast aircraft hangar of a space (Excel) in the east of London. Much
more room to move around!
■ Tablets everywhere: “Keep taking the tablets” is definitely the buzz
phrase. This continues a trend that’s been in evidence for the last couple
of years, and which shows no signs of abating.
■ Interactive displays: Again, lots of interactive whiteboard-type products,
but not necessarily with the overhead in terms of bulk.
■ Integration: There seemed to be a big emphasis on joining all the dots
this year: getting tablets and the classroom interactive displays working
together, with more teacher control over the devices being used by the
■ New types of spaces: The larger hall meant that a few innovative things
could be tried out in terms of how the space was used. A prime example
was the Bett Arena, an area that allowed for keynote talks right in the center
of things, areas for seminars, and areas where teachers could try stuff out.
