Bett is the global community for education technology. The event sparks ideas, creates connections and accelerates trade, driving impact and improving outcomes for teachers and learners. For the first time since the beginning of 2020, Bett returns to the ExCeL London on 19-21 January 2022 to reunite the global education community in person.
In the past year and a half, we’ve seen the education community demonstrate true resilience and resourcefulness in the face of ongoing disruption.
To ensure that educators were connected and supported during the new normal of living, learning, and working remotely, Bett pivoted to a fully digital offering, providing online professional development, expertise from leading voices in education, and solution discovery. Looking forwards, however, schools and institutions are moving beyond crisis response with the aim to turn lessons learned into sustainable, long-term action.
At a strategic systems level, what can be retained, developed, and/or streamlined? Here’s one of the multiple questions Bett is dedicated to try and answer at the show.
Introducing the Bett 2022 global themes
As the education community looks beyond the crisis response, the overarching theme of Bett 2022 is: create the future.
When challenged with exceptional, unprecedented problems and barriers to learning during this time of disruption, it has been vital for educators to think outside the box and solve problems creatively.
Armed with more EdTech solutions and resources than ever before, educators have the opportunity to reimagine traditional models of pedagogy so that students can plug into a personalised, future-facing learning experience and become resilient, creative lifelong learners who can harness their knowledge and skills to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.
Informed by conversations with our audience, Bett’s six global themes will structure the three full days of content at Bett 2022, ensuring that education stakeholders worldwide can address their most pressing challenges and priorities.
