Three Days - Two Exhibitions!

Thanks to all involved with the BITES Exhibition in Birmingham yesterday. It was a great day out and was enjoyed by all (including this lucky man being shown the ropes by Sue and Huida). Many of the bigger names were present such as RM, SAM Learning and Promethean, as well as a host of smaller companies. This simply confirmed the diversity of the elearning market. With services ranging from mobile digital mixing decks for schools to class monitoring software, there was something there for everyone.

It was very nice to be situated in one place and be able to talk to so many people during the day. As teachers are so busy, much of our time is spent on the phone chasing shadows, so it made a nice change to be the proverbial honey pot, with interested parties swarming around us. I think I could get used to that!

Another day, another exhibition! Tomorrow sees us attend the ASE (Science Association) Exhibition in Leamington Spa where we plan to deliver a Virtual Classroom showcase. Four schools from differnet parts of England will be live online delivering conclusions to their joint project; both to our audience, and to each other. This will show the power of collaborative learning and how it is possible for schools to share knowledge across any geography, without even having to leave the classroom!

This may have huge repercussions on how we share knowledge. Using our Virtual Classroom, subject experts can deliver the very best tutorials to all students regardless of their location or status. Just imagine if Shakespeare could have taught our kids English Literature......the mind boggles.
