Bett 2022: Education leaders urged to unplug and reconnect at Bett

The education community is being encouraged to connect, learn, share ideas and experiences at Bett this January

Organisers at Bett, the world’s biggest edtech show, are inviting the education community to emerge from behind the screen and come together face to face to connect, learn, share ideas and experiences and ultimately create the future of education.

The show is returning after 18 months of disruption and accelerated adoption of technology, where educators were forced to pivot and deliver lessons in unprecedented circumstances.

With all content sessions CPD-accredited, educators can even gain active learning CPD-points by taking part at the event, across the week.

Bett is the place for education leaders, teachers and tech pioneers to celebrate, find inspiration and discuss the future of education including the latest thinking on pedagogy, digital strategy and policy implementation.

Thousands have already signed up to the event, to be held on 19-21 January 2022 at ExCeL London.

Tech for all

Exhibitors and sponsors will range from tech superpowers such as Microsoft, Google, Lenovo and Pearson to specialist education suppliers such as Arbor Education, NetSupport, Promethean and 2Simple to rising start-up stars – offering impactful solutions for institutions of all sizes and all budgets.

High-profile speakers include one of the world’s leading authorities on growth mindset, Eduardo Briceño, the comedian and actor Sally Phillips, who will speak about home schooling during lockdown and life with a SEN child, and Gogglebox favourite Baasit Siddiqui, whose Siddiqui Education organisation helps boost the morale and achievements of disadvantaged pupils.

… we find that the best way to make sense of the plethora of technological solutions is to engage in person – Eve Harper

Eve Harper, Bett Event director, said: “Bett brings people together to network and have meaningful conversations. Despite our focus on tech, we find that the best way to make sense of the plethora of technological solutions is to engage in person. A range of new offerings coupled with familiar faces from the worlds of education and technology make this the main meeting point for the entire education sector.

“We will have thousands of attendees and some exciting speakers and solution providers, from Eduardo Briceño, one of the biggest proponents of the growth mindset, to Sally Phillips, an actor with a passion for connecting pupils with SEND.”

Esports – a secret weapon to learning?

A new esports feature will take place at Bett, allowing educators to see how esports is more than gaming and could, in fact, be the secret weapon in encouraging learning, promoting teamwork and communication.

Higher education leaders will also welcome a new co-located event designed just for them – Ahead by Bett – while global education leaders and change makers can convene at Learnit.

Places are free for all attendees.
