My colleagues in Workplace Learning and I kicked off proceedings this morning at Learning Technologies, with a rush of visitors to our stand (122 – come and visit us tomorrow if you get the chance, it’s well worth a visit!). As well as getting a chance to talk face-to-face with workplace learning professionals, and promoting new offerings (such as the Compliance Module for Moodle, and a groundbreaking social video platform for training) we are also hosting our partner The British Safety Council on the stand, as they promote their great range of health and safety e-learning courses.
Tomorrow also sees the first day of BETT 2013, the world’s largest technology in education show. The Webanywhere presence at the show will be our largest to date – here’s just some of the reasons to drop by our stand:
Free Mathsanywhere account for primary schools who visit the Webanywhere stand
5% discount for BETT visitors on the Webanywhere product range. Simply visit the stand and get the promo code(s)
Launch of the new look Learner Journey e-portfolio and safe social network for schools, with enhanced functionality, improved user interface and a range of new themes
Demonstrating the great new Learnanywhere mobile app, which allows the primary specific VLE to be accessed on the go
A joint promotion with Planet Sherston (stand F310) – take a product demo at both stands and claim a sticker. Attach both stickers to flyer to get a promo code for a fantastic special offer
…as well as the chance to talk to our e-learning consultants, who I can proudly say are the best in the business.
As soon as a website update is made, such as a new event or a school closure, parents can access the information on demand whilst on the move. Users are able to choose the type and frequency of their notifications so only the most relevant information is provided.
School Updates is another offering from the Webanywhere innovation lab, constantly working to stretch the potential of educational technology and provide products to enhance learning for students, teachers and parents.
The requirements of the end user are key to all we do, and our products are designed around the specific needs and requests of our customers. So we want to hear from you: how could technology improve your pupils learning experience? How could technology help improve collaboration between home and school? What extra functionality would you like Webanywhere’s products to offer? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
Yesterday I travelled all the way down to London with the team for the first day of the BETT Show 2012. We set up in the morning at Stand K49, and its been all go since then. With Wednesday traditionally meant to be a quiet day, I wouldn’t be surprised if we were rushed off our feet all the way till Saturday 14th of January when it finishes.
The show, for those of you that don’t know, is an annual event that showcases the best uses of ICT and e-learning in education. It’s a great opportunity for me and my staff to meet new customers and catch up with a few familiar faces too. The exhibition is also a big inspiration, with plenty of exciting demonstrations and eye-catching inventions.
We started the day with a Webanywhere presentation at the Google stand all about Google Apps. Then, we dived right in at our own stand with chats, coffee and demos of our software. My personal highlight was showing off the brand new version of our school website builder; School Jotter 2.
As well as a team at the stand, we also had our multimedia crew filming and snapping the event. Take a look at their BETT 2012 video round-up of the show, featured below.
