I’m hugely exciting about the forthcoming Education Show, at ExCeL London on Thursday and Friday 24th and 25th January, where I’ll be chairing the Policy in Practice theatre, one of three different strands of the UK’s go-to annual education gathering. This is the first time I’m going to be able to attend BETT, too, the UK’s premier EdTech show, which this year runs alongside the Education Show.
In another first, the Education Show has moved to London for the first time in 28 years, and tickets – which are free to those working in education – are available here. Whilst I’m looking forward to hearing from the speakers I’m introducing – who include Laura McInerney, Drew Povey and Sherry Coutu – I’m also looking forward to the opportunity to see what is new and innovative from the show’s many exhibitors.
There are two further strands in the Education Show’s programme of speakers, with both a School Business and a Pedagogy in Practice series of presentations. These strands include the incomparable Becky Allen, as well as award-winning teachers, researchers and those at the heart of education policy.
Trade shows can often be overwhelming in my experience, and careful planning is the key to getting the most out them. Both the Education Show and Bett make that easy, of course, by including extensive details on their websites, which are up and running with all the details you might possibly need.
One of the joys of education gatherings like the Education Shows is the opportunity to stumble across things of which you were previously blissfully unaware, and with the sheer number of speakers and exhibitors at ExCeL, I’m looking forward to discovering the delights in store.
A New Year always brings thoughts for the future, and now is a great time to take the opportunity to explore the challenges and inspirations which the next year will bring; events such as the Education Show and Bett pack a huge amount into a short space of time, making them an extremely efficient way to take a fresh look at what you are currently doing, and to consider your next move…
Register for your free tickets here, and I look forward to seeing you at the Education Show!
