Well, today I visited the BETT show at Excel in London and, as a result, today I joined EduGeek.
I wonder what other BETT show visitors made of it?

I made a beeline for and particularly enjoyed the event 'Technology and How We Learn' where Armand D'Angour, Bette Chambers and Susan Greenfield gave us their take on what 'educational software/programming' ought to be aiming for. Highly though provoking.
Brave and outspoken, I particularly enjoyed Bette Chambers (Uni York and Johns Hopkins) urging us delegates to ask of the tech gizmo exhibitors - what proof do you have that your product actually makes a positive difference to learning?

She added that investment in marketing will yield more remunerative payback than investment in robust scientific investigation.... How sad and how true.
