Why we need your help as we take the temperature of Innovation in Schools and Universities everywhere

Why we need your help as we take the temperature of Innovation in Schools and Universities everywhere

This year Bett is launching a new annual survey, in fact you may have seen the invitation to complete it in your inbox? If not here’s the link for you to fill it out!

We’re launching this survey because we want to understand, and share, how innovation moves throughout schools and universities everywhere. We know education attainment has been on an upward trajectory for years, we also know that technology has been helping to enable this, but the world is moving faster every year and the pace of change differs around the world.

Coming in to Bett 2018 we realise many of you are teaching pupils whose careers haven’t even been invented yet. This, coupled with rising student numbers, is a global challenge and it’s one that is both exhilarating and scary.

This kind of hazy future needs a new set of skills and insights, for pupils, for teachers and of course for the policy makers.

Which is where the results of this survey come in. They will be used to help us create the Bett Innovation Index. This new report will give us those insights into how technology and new ideas move from awareness to adoption and on to being embedded in education systems. It will also give us context on what the key attributes for embracing innovation are and whether schools are growing, or falling behind. We can see the power of this in helping to shape the future of education and we’d love your support in helping to make it happen. We’ll be hosting a special session at Bett to officially launch first edition and we’ll have some special guests come along to discuss some of the findings and what it means for our world.

So, if you haven’t already completed the survey take a moment to do so. It will really make a difference to your daily life in the future.

All survey completions will go in the draw to win one of 5, £100 amazon vouchers.
