January 27, 2017



(London –January 25, 2017) – Promethean, a leading global provider of educational technology solutions, will be delivering a high profile programme of activity at Bett 2017, the largest education technology conference in the UK. At the show, Promethean will create an immersive learning experience in the NetDragon Platinum Suite, showcase its latest modern classroom solutions, and host a series of UK teacher-led seminars at the ‘Promethean Theatre.’

 

At Bett, Promethean will bring its pragmatic and education focused approach to life as part of an immersive learning experience in the NetDragon Platinum Suite. Hosted by Promethean’s Dr. John Collick, invited guests will be able to explore technologies and understand how these give us the impetus, the power, and the vision to build a new paradigm for education.

 

“Education, technology, our understanding of how the mind learns, and our understanding of how young people interact with technology is all coming together at a single point; our very own da Vinci moment,” said Dr. John Collick. “At Bett 2017, we’ll be taking educators on a journey with the objective to inspire visitors to think of technology differently and understand how it can advance and enhance teaching and learning.”

 

“As part of the NetDragon Websoft Group of companies, we’re in a very privileged position to see some of the most cutting edge technologies which are being developed worldwide – some of which are used in other sectors already – some of which are not,” said Ian Curtis, Head of EMEA and ANZ markets at Promethean. “At Bett 2017, we want to bring these together to create an immersive experience which gets people thinking about the future’s potential and leaves them inspired as to what technology in education might look like in our lifetime and beyond.”

 

At stand B98, Promethean will showcase the all-new ActivPanel™ with InGlassTM touch and writing technology and ClassFlow Desktop. The new interactive touchboard offers a natural and smooth writing experience that is precise and lag-free with free-form handwriting, drawing, and saving and sending capabilities. Visitors will be able to learn more about the freedom, flexibility and control the new ActivPanel will offer teachers and get an opportunity to experience the interactive touchboard up close.

 

Attendees can also visit the ‘Promethean Theatre’ at stand B98 where UK teachers will host a rolling programme of practical seminars offering teachers best practices on using edtech in the classroom. The seminars will highlight how ActivPanel with ClassFlow can be used to leverage the teaching potential of the increasingly popular ‘Internet of Things’.

 

“Our team of Promethean Advocates have first-hand experience in using the latest Promethean solutions in UK classrooms,” explains Janice Prandstatter, teaching and learning consultant at Promethean. “They’ve been able to use the best of their knowledge and skills to develop some really powerful seminars that will equip teachers with useful tips and ideas that can be utilized in lessons at their schools.”
