Education Show and Bett Academies recap

Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th March saw educators from throughout the UK and beyond head to Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) for the Education Show and Bett Academies. We were encamped in the latter for the first two days, meeting educators to film Innovation Bursts, as well as find out how we can help school leaders raise their profile through our events and our community-driven activities. Here are some of our highlights.

Bett 2017: Our day four recap

While Saturday was the shortest day of BETT 2017, there were still plenty of edtech  for attendees to see. Many of you came to our stand to discuss your work or to film Innovation Bursts, which was a tremendous honour for us. We’re always looking to work with educators from all areas of the sector, so to have classroom teachers, school leaders, consultants, suppliers and trainee teachers get involved was great for both feedback and future content! There was even a moment when the stand was invaded by a number of the Primary Rocks team!

Bett 2017: Our day one recap

The first day of Bett saw innovators from across the globe fill up the ExCeL London with passion, fervour and amazing ideas. From our stand at G80, we saw hungry educators storm the hall, with an excitement that reminds you of why the BETT Show has the reputation that it enjoys.

In order to spread innovation to even more schools than before, in the new year we’ll be running three major regional speed dating events. These will take place in London, Manchester and Birmingham in March, and will offer school leaders from local Primary and Secondary schools the chance to meet some of the latest and most up-and-coming edtech innovations.

This month we’ll be heading out to Dubai for a major innovation speed dating event - the first of its kind in the Middle East. The event will be taking place on 24th November and will see 16 of the world’s most innovative edtech providers - both leading and up-and-coming - meet with school leaders from international school group GEMS Education at The Kindergarten Starters in Al Garhoud.

2015/16: A year of innovations

It’s been a busy year for UK schools, with new edtech, academisation and changes to the exams system on teachers’ minds. As a result, we’ve been working with more educators than ever before. The 2015/16 year saw 621 articles published and 62 speed dating events run, with three major Twitter projects and a new website on top. Here are some highlights from the past 11 months:

Innovate My School has partnered with the Bett Show to back the third Bett Futures. Launched in 2015, Futures brings Bett delegates the most exciting and inspiring edtech startups from across the world. Innovate My School joins BESA, Naace, Edspace Hoxton, The EdTech Exchange and WORLDbytes in getting involved with the future of educational technology. The Bett Show will take place at ExCeL London on 25th-28th January 2017.

Friday 1st July will see High 5 a Teacher Day, a new event celebrating top teaching practices. A Twitter-held holiday, #High5aTeacherDay will ask teachers, school staff, pupils and parents to high-five a teacher / teachers, and explaining what makes their high-fivees special. Those taking part are encouraged to include a video or (well-timed) photo to show off the occasion.

The very first Innovate My School Twitter competition has been launched, and will see one UK school receive a £150 voucher for stationary and classroom supplies vendors Viking. All teachers and school staff need to do is let us know what they’d do with these supplies via tweet to be in with a chance at winning. Entrants should ensure that they’re following us, because the winner will be notified by Twitter DM!

It’s with a tremendous honour that we bring you the Innovate My School Guide 2015/16. Bringing together 21 none-more-enthusiastic teachers, this publication examines 10 key areas of education to inform the year ahead. It discusses the benefits, pitfalls, learning outcomes and future trends of various pedagogic areas, allowing our experienced contributors to share methods and resource beneficial to schools worldwide.
