Wow another Bett show has come and gone in a flash! We had an amazing week on the NetSupport stand and we wanted to share a few highlights with you.
- Visitor feedback
The positive feedback we received from visitors about ReallySchool and other NetSupport products was outstanding. It was so great to see people engaging with our products and talking about how they could support their school. It was also a fantastic opportunity to get some ideas for future development to make even more improvements to ReallySchool. It was also interesting to meet so many new people and hear about their experiences in education.
- NetSupport Radio
Being the official broadcaster for Bett this year was an amazing achievement for NetSupport radio! Our host Russell Prue provided fantastic entertainment with interviews, news and music that kept us joyful and motivated throughout the week. We were also treated to a special student takeover on Friday. Where the stars of Westwood Radio took over the station. (They gave Russell a run for his money!)
- Special guests
We were lucky to have our friends GoBubble, the ANME and the ICT Evangelist with us on the stand throughout the week. Their support was much appreciated. We also had some special guests from Dogsthorpe Infant School and Hampton Academies Trust come visit us on the stand. It was so thoughtful for them to take the time to come support us at Bett and take part in radio interviews.
Over the week, we had a variety of speakers working in education sharing their expertise. Mark Anderson and Al Kingsley shared their ‘Digital Strategy Guide’ which we gave out on our stand. If you missed out on a copy you can get one here.
. However, the best slot of the week was the ‘Digital Leaders’ presentation from students at Lanchester Endowed Parochial Primary School and Birchwood Primary School.
- Bett Awards
ReallySchool was a finalist (for the 2nd year in a row!) at the 2020 Bett Awards. Our category was ‘Classroom aids for learning, teaching and assessment.’ Although we didn’t win, we were thrilled to be finalist among such high-quality entries and we had a fabulous evening at the awards ceremony.
There was so much to see at Bett. We were amazed by the vast array of resources available for schools. Additionally, there were some great seminars and panels to attend. A personal highlight for me was EdTech Collective Takeover networking session from the Gender Equality Collective. There were some really important discussions about the UK digital gender gap and the role of businesses and educators in closing this.
- Dream Team
I have to say the biggest highlight of all was working with the best team all week. NetSupport is a big work family. We all worked really hard this week but we also looked after each other. We had a great week together on the stand.
