Thanks to the generosity of our annual associates, Iris Connect, Group Call, LightSpeed, Oracle and Steljes, we were able to run a four day debate at BETT13 this year in the new location, Excel, in East London.

Those of you unable to attend MirandaNet’s opening session may enjoy Christina Preston’s interview with Sir Bob Geldof  about his own schooling and his approach to technologies: the video of this interview can be found on the page for January 30. Sir Bob’s appearance was sponsored by Group Call.

We think it is important that those who cannot attend our events can have access to  the resources. In this spirit of sharing the videos were filmed by IRIS Connect, the sound equipment was supplied by Light Speed and the projectors and screens by Steljes. Oracle also helped with our expenses.

Many of the sessions each day were recorded and they can be watched in the pages that follow:

Wednesday January 30 2013 Miranda’s ICT curriculum: today and tomorrow

Thursday January 31 2013 Professional Development about ICT and underpinned by ICT

Terry Freedman says of the show: “The BETT Show is, I’m reliably informed, the biggest education technology show in the world”. Read more…
