Last week the Kortext team, along with thousands of teachers, education enthusiasts, government ministers and students attended Bett 2018 at the ExCel centre in London. The show was spread over 4 days and saw approximately 34,700 people from 131 countries walk through its doors.
The ExCel was a hive of activity with key speakers from Rt Hon Anne Milton MP, Bill Rankin, Lord Adonis, Baroness Beeban Kidron, Helen Skelton, Natasha Kaplinsky - to name a few. Oh and of course Kortext’s very own, Yaz El Hakim, who stole the show with a talk on “Personalised Learning for Students from Single Courses to Smart Nations”.
Bett brought a new level of innovation to the venue by providing areas such as the Solutions Den; giving an opportunity for individuals to learn first hand how to use software and products, Bett Futures that showcased the best global edtech start-ups, and Future Graduates that helped to celebrate the previous years Future companies that had taken their next steps.
One passerby commented “This years Bett show is amazing! It's so busy and the atmosphere is electric, there are small pockets of things that are happening but Bett Futures seems to be where the most innovative developments in edtech are! I love it!”
Emma Prowse, Senior Marketing Executive commented, “We love coming to Bett! Every year there’s so much going on and so many exciting, innovative products to check out. It’s great to be surrounded by so many forward thinking, like-minded people that share the same values as Kortext around the power of digital learning. Being part of the edvinca stand at Bett Futures has been really eye-opening, and a little glimpse into what the future holds for education.”
Sarah Johnston, Product Executive said, “Bett this year for me personally, has been about connecting with all members of the education spectrum. I love the diverse conversations that I have with the many visitors to the Kortext stand. Throughout the event, we spoke to a range of people, including international education providers, teachers and even students who were deciding which university to attend. Discussing their interest in Kortext and where it could take them was a real pleasure and I can't wait to do it all again next year!”
