Time flying by....
It hardly seems possible that the end of term is here already! But if you think that one went quickly, don't blink next term or you'll miss it. Only five weeks before CNY and then four more until the Easter break.
It will be even shorter for me as I will be staying in London at the start of next term to visit the BETT Show, widely regarded to be the single most important educational technology show in the world.
Armed with a shopping list I'll be visiting lots of suppliers all keen to do "business" and attending various seminars and workshops, including the widely anticipated TeachMeet.... note start time as Fri 6.00pm!
High up on my must see list is the new Activarena software, which allows multiple users to input onto a whiteboard. Hopefully it will put the interactive into the Interactive White Board, although why Promethean see noughts and crosses as the obvious use for this is not clear! I can foresee that teachers at Kellett will see this has huge potential in the classroom and I'll be hoping that we can get international copies as soon as possible.
Festive greetings and all that...
