Education leaders and teachers are being urged to unplug and reconnect in person at Bett in January.

Organisers of the edtech show are inviting the education community to come together face-to-face to connect, learn, share ideas and experiences, and think about the future of education. Thousands have already signed up to the free event, which is being held 19-21 January 2022 at ExCeL London.

The show is returning after 18 months of disruption and accelerated adoption of technology, where educators were forced to pivot to online learning. With all content sessions CPD-accredited, educators can gain active learning CPD points by taking part.

Exhibitors and sponsors will range from tech superpowers such as Microsoft, Google, Lenovo and Pearson, to specialist education suppliers such as Arbor Education, NetSupport, Promethean and 2Simple, to rising start-ups.

Speakers include growth mindset expert Eduardo Briceño, comedian and actor Sally Phillips, who will speak about home schooling during lockdown and life with a SEN child, and Gogglebox’s Baasit Siddiqui, whose Siddiqui Education organisation helps boost the morale and achievements of disadvantaged pupils.

Eve Harper, event director, said: “Bett brings people together to network and have meaningful conversations. Despite our focus on tech, we find that the best way to make sense of the plethora of technological solutions is to engage in person. A range of new offerings coupled with familiar faces from the worlds of education and technology make this the main meeting point for the entire education sector.”

Bett is introducing a new esports feature which will allow educators to see how esports can be used in encouraging learning, promoting teamwork and communication.

The show has also created a new co-located event for higher education leaders, Ahead by Bett, while global education leaders and change makers can convene at Learnit.
