BETT Show 2009

The BETT Show at Olympia (London) January 2009.

I went this year with the specific purpose of looking at notebook laptops for use with Primary school children. There are plenty of notebooks on the market, however, the most child friendly and versatile model is available through TAG. Their FIZZ BOOK has a 10 inch screen, 60gb hard drive and comes with a simplified version of 'office' called 'Ability Office'. The creen can be turned and flattened to become a tablet PC .

Promethean are introducing a new version of their Activ Board software. It combines all the features of Activ Primary and Activ Professional plus lots of new elements. It is called' Activ Inspire' and you can personalise the look you want from it. See their website for more details.

You can download a trial version from their website. The full verion will be available from March.
