London viste seg fra sin beste side disse dagene i januar; strålende sol og stille kaldt vintervær.
Hovedinntrykk: Ikke de store tekped nyhetene, men mye store-skjermer-teknologi, fler og fler nasjonale (Engelske) leverandører som kanskje ikke er like interesserte i internasjonale (norske) besøkende.
Hvis BETT 2012 hadde et tema var det berøringsfølsomme skjermer i alle størrelser. Det som var overraskende var at de fleste av disse syntes å kjøre Googles Android operativsystem og det nye Windows 8 operativsystemet. Det var få Apple utstillere tilstede.
Bridge to Learning: Den (upopulære?) engelske undervisningsministeren – Michael Gove – hadde følgende melding da han innledet BETT 2012:
“Just at the time when technology is bursting with potential, teachers, professionals, employers, universities, parents and pupils are all telling us the same thing – ICT in schools is a mess,” Mr Gove said.
“That’s why I am announcing today that the Department for Education is opening a consultation on withdrawing the existing National Curriculum Programme of Study for ICT from September this year.”
The Education Secretary said universities and business would be given the opportunity to create new courses, focusing on the area of computer science in particular. (Michael Gove was the highlight of the morning, opening the show with a number of announcements regarding a proposed reform of the ICT curriculum.)
