Global education pioneers Promethean are heading to Bett 2016 to spread the word of collaboration. Taking into account employers’ increasing emphasis on the need for collaborative skills, the edu-resource experts will be attending the London conference to show teachers how these abilities can be developed. The Bett Show is taking place at ExCeL London from 20th - 23rd January, and Promethean will be meeting attendees at Stand B99.


Building on its recent suite of collaboration resources aimed at supporting school leaders and teachers in developing and implementing a collaborative teaching strategy, Promethean will use Bett 2016 as the platform to introduce the concept of the ‘Modern Classroom’ and explore what this means for education technology in schools – both today and tomorrow.

“The reality is that collaboration is already an established teaching method, particularly when we are talking about group working,” said Mark Robinson, head of education strategy at Promethean. So how can a school build on these techniques and move forward in a more ‘modern’ collaborative way?”

At Bett, Promethean and a team of teachers from around the UK and Ireland will be using the latest ActivPanels, Promethean’s interactive flat panel display. Their demonstrations will show how these front-of-class solutions provide a powerful teaching tool which not only helps to engage and motivate students, but also provides an excellent foundation for creating the ‘Modern Classroom’.

As well as welcoming educators to visit Stand B99, Promethean will also be hosting a series of ‘Learn Live’ sessions during the four day event, holding a seminar at the School Leaders Summit and delivering an inspirational presentation as part of the Bett Arena schedule.

Mark added: “A whole-school strategy modelled on an established collaborative approach is a good start. Build on this with a clear framework which gives students and teachers a robust and working reference point, and you pretty much have all of the theoretical ingredients for success But is it really that simple?

“In theory…yes. In practice, there is obviously a lot of time, effort and resource required to make it work – and choosing the right technology is just one of the things that schools need to think through…”

    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
