    What did you learn at BETT 2008

    Hi

    So yopu have been to BETT 2008 seen all the latest innovations. So what did you learn from BETT 2008 so that all us Eduggekers that could not attend can get a feel for what was there.

    regards

    Alex

    I got introduced to the various combinations and uses of the RM minibook and the use of single sign on's for VLE's and OWA and other modules.

    I learnt that I should get a new pair of shoes as my feet were killing by the end of the day as well as a bigger screened PDA as its a bit small for OWA on the move.

    Oh and from an IT Front, that Nelson Thornes can be a good firm who do want to make us happy when you speak to a really nice guy who solves your problems and that I should really make a proper plan of where to go round the show and be more methodical, or just get 2 days to do it in.

    Never go to BETT with a broken toe and sprained ankle. Particularly if they are on different legs

    I learned that at BETT there aren't any technical people who attend - just ex-double glazing salesmen who have come in out of the cold.

    But some of the kit was nice anyway

    And who let the old biddy in on Thursday with the shopping dilly? She ran me over with it first and then bu**er me asked me to carry it up the stairs for her when I encountered her again about two hours later!

    ..the person who told me he wasn't interested in EduGeek because he didn't work in IT or Education... Then why are you....? Actually, I probably don't want to know...

    I learnt that National Express coaches are uncomfortable for long journeys (6hrs). Especially the night service - loud ticking indicators, juddering, and gale-force winds blowing in from the driver's open window all lead to a sleepless journey

    Oh, and that my phone battery lasts less than 24 hours if used as an mp3 player for over an hour.

    I learnt to try and get 2 days off next year for BETT. Assuming the outsourced PFI company actually allows me to go!

    More seriously though, Adobe's Master Suite 3, I knew it was good, but didn't know it was that good! I spent a good few hours watching the presentations in awe!

    As has been said above with the show getting bigger and bigger all the time you don't have enough time in one day to view everything.

    Next year I will be going down for a couple of days possibly Friday / Saturday.

    I learnt that a £100,000 packet filter, monitor + traffc shaper can be largely replicated using open source tools and a spare desktop machine.
