Alongside this Board, Ahead by Bett – our sister event dedicated to Higher Education -  has launched a specialist Advisory Board which will focus its attention on driving digital transformation for universities across the world.

 

What are the Board’s priorities?

 

Our Advisory Board will be integral to the planning of next year’s edition of Bett (29-31 March 2023), sharing their insights and recommendations on how we can support the education community as the sector continues to grow and evolve.

 

For the past two years, our Advisory Board has naturally focused on the impact of the pandemic: how this challenged traditional methods of teaching, and accelerated the rapid, wide-spread implementation of new EdTech tools.

 

As schools, colleges look to advance their digital strategies, we are excited to hear from our Board on the endless possibilities EdTech can offer to teachers and learners and implement these across Bett’s programme. Within this, a core pillar for the group will be focusing on how Bett can become more inclusive, representative, accessible and sustainable, driving real and impactful progress towards the SDGs. Watch this space to see the new initiatives Bett and the Board create for 2023 and beyond!
