Global education pioneers Promethean are heading to Bett 2016 to spread the word of collaboration. Taking into account employers’ increasing emphasis on the need for collaborative skills, the edu-resource experts will be attending the London conference to show teachers how these abilities can be developed. The Bett Show is taking place at ExCeL London from 20th - 23rd January, and Promethean will be meeting attendees at Stand B99.

Building on its recent suite of collaboration resources aimed at supporting school leaders and teachers in developing and implementing a collaborative teaching strategy, Promethean will use Bett 2016 as the platform to introduce the concept of the ‘Modern Classroom’ and explore what this means for education technology in schools – both today and tomorrow.

“The reality is that collaboration is already an established teaching method, particularly when we are talking about group working,” said Mark Robinson, head of education strategy at Promethean. So how can a school build on these techniques and move forward in a more ‘modern’ collaborative way?”

At Bett, Promethean and a team of teachers from around the UK and Ireland will be using the latest ActivPanels, Promethean’s interactive flat panel display. Their demonstrations will show how these front-of-class solutions provide a powerful teaching tool which not only helps to engage and motivate students, but also provides an excellent foundation for creating the ‘Modern Classroom’.

As well as welcoming educators to visit Stand B99, Promethean will also be hosting a series of ‘Learn Live’ sessions during the four day event, holding a seminar at the School Leaders Summit and delivering an inspirational presentation as part of the Bett Arena schedule.

Mark added: “A whole-school strategy modelled on an established collaborative approach is a good start. Build on this with a clear framework which gives students and teachers a robust and working reference point, and you pretty much have all of the theoretical ingredients for success But is it really that simple?

“In theory…yes. In practice, there is obviously a lot of time, effort and resource required to make it work – and choosing the right technology is just one of the things that schools need to think through…”
