BETT

BETT (the education training and technology show) is on this week and I visited with some colleagues on Thursday. Technology is certainly taking over education and it did feel as if real creativity is being replaced by interactive learning games which look fun but seem to limit freedom of expression. I liked the SensoryScent company who have developed a wide range of fragrances (and not so fragrant historical smells!) to add to learning experiences. I will be looking further at MyCognition which assesses and trains five components of cognitive health including working memory and attention.

But a favourite moment was when ‘disorientation’ was added to AudioNotetaker’s mural showing challenges that students face when learning.Jpeg
