    The Microsoft Partners in Learning crew are usually good for interesting ways to use tech in the classroom, if you can catch a few TeachMeet Takeovers they can be good fun and any of the C@S related stuff should be interesting to see.

    Because the venue is different and there are some folk who are not there anymore (Adobe didn't make it last year either, for example) it is hard to say "this is usually a good thing".

    It's gone from the website, link now goes to a PDF, but that link (from @Steve21) worked, so useful, though the app may be easier to use on the go.

    WARNING - The updated app has borked previous settings. Be warned, and if you use it to plan with, don't take further updates. All my favorites and notes got moved to other suppliers! Which means they didn't tie the info tightly to the exhibitor, just a position in the list it seems.

    I'm having to travel in from Heathrow on the Saturday morning - I was wondering if I can purchase a 1 day travelcard from a bus driver (1st part of the journey is a bus ride to Hounslow West Underground station) or do I have to wait & purchase the ticket at Hounslow West?

    Tube from Heathrow surely? Whatever terminal you're at there's a station.

    I think you'd have to buy it before hand. Can't you buy it at heathrow, even if you don't take the tube from there.

    Piccadilly line caters for all terminals at Heathrow - change at Green Park for the Jubilee line to North Greenwich

    Sorry should have clarified - I'm arriving at Heathrow on Fri night but staying overnight at a hotel nearby. Hoping to not have to go near Heathow on the Sat... I wonder if I could purchase the day ticket on the Fri but not use it until the Sat.

    From what i remember you could definitely do that in shops, so i'm sure you can do it at the station too, you just might have to go to a counter.

    @SteveB If you buy it at the counter, you can specify what day you want it for... i.e. buy it in advance. Not sure about the machines
