BETT is the world's largest educational technology event. If you missed us on our stand you can still download presentations from our seminars, or come and see us at the Education Show  4-6 March 2010 at the NEC in Birmingham, where you'll find us on stand N29, Hall 6. 

Our stand

Our stand had four 'pods':

  • 0-11 years: Information about early years, the primary curriculum, Assessing Pupils' Progress and the life cycle of the test.
  • 11-19 years: Information about the secondary curriculum, the Diploma, Foundation Learning, functional skills, 14-19 qualifications and the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
  • mycurriculum.com (two pods): Had an interactive live demonstration of mycurriculum.com on our stand, the website which enables teachers across the country to connect, communicate and collaborate with each other. The site helps teachers to access and develop best practice activities, lesson plans, resources and examples of pupils' work.  This is all supported by relevant and up-to-date assessment criteria and can be connected to the policies, strategies and frameworks of the national curriculum.
