Experience engaging ways to transform learning with tablets in our Interactive Zone

Wednesday 7th January 2015

This year at BETT we’re delighted to have education technology specialists from Tablet Academy on our stand in our Interactive Zone, showcasing some innovative ways in which tablets can be used to enhance the learning experience.

Bring along your own device or choose from our wide range to carry out activities designed to make the most of tablet technology to inspire students and bring their learning into new contexts.

  • Learn how to teach a lesson in forensic science through investigating a crime scene on our stand, using just your tablet.
  • Present from the scene of the murder using only your tablet and our green screen – an ideal task for an English or Media lesson.
  • Program robots to perform tasks at a range of levels from simple movements for KS1 to hovering drones for KS3.

As well as having fun with the activities, you’ll also be able to get expert advice from Tablet Academy specialists on integrating tablets into the curriculum. Stone Infrastructure Services specialists will also be on-hand to discuss the technical requirements and implications to your network of tablet-driven learning.

You’ll also be able to find out more about TalkTechTeach; an end-to-end approach to deploying tablets into the curriculum. TalkTechTeach is available in two flavours: one for educators, and one for technicians, and we’re able to offer and initial consultancy completely free of charge – a proposition exclusive to Stone.
