Bett, the leading global education event, will from 25th to 28th January return to ExCel London, with a fresh focus on game-changers within education. The event attracts more than 30,000 educators from across the world each year who come to see the latest and most innovative learning resources and to learn from the various seminars. The Bett Show is free to attend.

With a history spanning over three decades, Bett is known for bringing together everyone with a passion for improving the future through education and showcasing the very best the global education marketplace has to offer. Some key features to expect this year are:

Bett Arena

The Bett Arena offers visitors sessions that mix practical advice, insight, inspiration and tools. The area was developed to showcase the individuals and products that are creating an impact in education. For 2017, alongside speakers such as Heston Blumenthal, Sir David Carter and Elspeth Finch, attendees can expect the return of Sir Ken Robinson, exploding science, provocative open discussion, 3D printed school dinners, collaboration with thought leaders and visionaries and world exclusive tech launches.

Bett Futures

Bett Futures, a platform designed to nurture emerging edtech start-up companies, is returning to Bett following a successful launch at the show in 2015 and impressive growth in 2016. This year, the aim of Bett Futures is to showcase budding businesses that promise to be game changers in education and it will run in association with the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) and the Times Educational Supplement (TES), along with other partners such as Innovate My School.

Learn Live seminars

Practitioner-led ‘Learn Live’ seminars and workshops covering Primary, Secondary, Higher Education, special educational needs (SEN), Further Education and skills, will address key issues in contemporary education. These varied sessions will provide useful insight into the latest research, practices and policies affecting education worldwide.

School Leaders Summit

The growing emphasis on school leadership will be addressed in the School Leaders Summit, which will explore the most significant challenges facing senior leadership teams and how they can be tackled. Expanded for Bett 2017, the School Leaders Summit is separated into two streams. The first stream will focus on challenges, innovation and the future of education, probing into some of the biggest challenges facing senior school leaders. The second stream will address the practical and business challenges of leadership in education.

STEAM Village

Following its success in 2016, the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Village will play host to a number of organisations supporting learning in the STEAM subjects. The Bett STEAM Village is an interactive space for teachers and students to learn through exploration and play; a place for visitors to try out STEAM solutions and products while considering how they can be assimilated into the classroom to enhance education.

    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.
