BETT 09: UK's Annual ICT (Ed Tech) conference - Tabletop Computing and More

BETT is the annual ICT & educational technology conference held in the UK. The UK has the highest number of classrooms in the world with interactive whiteboards, which has been an interesting transformation to follow over the past few years.

I've posted several video clips from BETT '09, which was held this month (January), along with some other resources. Tabletop computing applications for education were demonstrated by Microsoft Surface and Smart Technologies. Take a look!

I think there is a need for more application development in this area!

The following two clips are from the visitor's point of view, overwhelmed by it all...
