BETT always leaves me feeling melancholy. It’s kind of very cool, but also a bit naff. However, the best part about the show is meeting other teachers (and the occasional company who ‘get it’ too). During the last show I took part in the wonderfully mind bending DELL thinking jobby.
This year I’ll be banging on about Bring Your Own Device. Well, to be more exact I plan to tell the story of what we’ve been up to at my school – an on-going mission to develop a better pedagogy that uses, where appropriate, the devices that young people bring with them to school every day. I’m not going to give any spoilers, mainly because I’m planning to be bang up-to-date and there continues to be developments each week – especially around the moral implications of relying up parent’s providing 3G…..
So, it’s with great pleasure, a little excitement and a shed load of nerves that I can tell you that, during Bett 2013, I’ll; be mainly:
- Taking part in a debate in the BETT Arena;
- Talking twice a day on the Microsoft Stand, and
- Putting together a Learn Live session.
All with a focus on BYOD and handheld devices, with a large pinch of mayhem and naughtiness.
I’m sure that there’ll be a few other things going on too. See you there?
