BETT 2010: Future Learning Spaces (13 – 16 January 2010, Olympia)
I am writing to share with you our plans for BETT 2010. This year at BETT, Partnerships for Schools (PfS) will be hosting a new area called ‘Future Learning Spaces’. This space will include a Seminar Theatre, Local Authority Lounge, Network Managers Lounge, Interactive Learning Spaces and ‘info pods’ offering specialist information about ICT in BSF and other programmes.
BETT 2010 includes a number of PfS conference speakers including Steve Moss, Ged McClinton and Tim Byles who will be making a keynote on Friday 15th at 12.30pm. Tim will share his thoughts on BSF progress to date, and how the expanded role of PfS – which now includes the full suite of capital investment programmes – will enable PfS to have ‘one conversation’ with local authorities and the private sector going forward.
Daily Seminar Programme (attached below - Tony)
We have a great line up of content including panel discussions, debates and talks from local authorities, PfS staff and our sponsors on a wide range of subjects. Highlights include:
· Sony: Media and Learning – Embracing the You Tube Generation
· Atkins: Desktop Virtualisation in Education – From Bleeding Edge to Leading Edge
· Lookred Solutions: Lend Lease, Impleo and lookred solutions have come together to create the Lend Lease Learning Space. This space provides a stimulating context for discussion about how this type of environment could support new and compelling ways of learning in the future
