    Last Friday I received a phone call informing me that I had to get myself to the Hack To The Future event being held at Our Ladies Catholic High School in Preston as a matter of urgency because the BBC are to be there and would be unwrapping, for the first time, the BBC Micro 2.
    So, interest ignited, I quickly re-arranged my Saturday schedule and got myself onto the invite list, as this kind of opportunity couldn't be passed up. ...

    I have just been sent a PR statement about the numbers from this years BETT.
    BETT had 30,372* visitors over the 4 days which made it the highest attended BETT so far. This was an increase of 3.84% from last year.
    Next years BETT is at the ExCel exhibition centre which I am told provides extra space and also is now at the end of January (30th - 2nd Feb) which hopefully will mean more can attend rather than having it in the first week of term for many. They also say current bookings for next years show are at 104% percent of Olympia's capacity already.
    As usual EduGeek will be attending so make sure you come along to the new stand. ...

    I know some of you might already recognise the phrase including in the title, as it is a central tenet of the ICT Register - DEFUNCT, but the same ethos is wide spread within the education community. It doesn't matter whether you are talking about school staff getting together at TeachMeets, having in-depth discussions via twitter through things like #ukedchat, online communities such as EduGeek.net or more local groups such as NorthantsBLT, the growing role of schools taking ownership of their advice and guidance and how they share it with others is a very important part of how schools need to react to recent changes which have come out of DfE. ...
