BETT 2011

What a week. It started with the learning without frontiers conference and ended with a teacher centred education event, more commonly know as a teach meet. So how was it. the LWF conference was excellent. A lot of top quality speakers and debate organised by Graham Brown-Martin. He does do his best to get high quality, inter sign people and this year did nit disappoint. I particularly enjoyed Evan Roth’s disruptive view of life. A breath of fresh air IMHO. There were some good presentations such as Tim Rylands et al however the mist aggravated back channel of the event went to Katherine B…. You know the one…ex deputy at school in South East…Tories love her she hates progres in terms of ICT and whitters away with sound bytes and non research based nonsense. However, I believe she did keep the event real. I love the way Graham Brown-Martin does this on the last day. Anyway….to cap the mid week celebration there was the TEDxOrenda. This was organised by Drew Buddie (@digitalmaverick). What an uplifting event themed with the proposition of change and moving forward in adversity. there were so many speakers and fantastic people at this event that this blog would not do it justice so look it up! (it will be worth it).

Now for BETT…
