How Education and Technology Crossover

We are proud to be partnering this week with our colleagues and friends at Hyve group for four days of stimulating conference and exhibition at BETT 2020 held at London’s Excel. The event sees the global education community come together to celebrate, find inspiration and discuss the future of education as well as how technology and innovation enables educators and learners to thrive.

Along with over 34,000 attendees and an exciting range of Edtech suppliers, Giant iTab will not only be supporting the organiser by using our Giant iTabs for wayfinding and accessing integral show information but also exhibiting and talking with educators and leaders from the sector on how Giant iTab solutions are already in place in universities and colleges across the country to help education departments with various applications. These universities include the University of Rotterdam, University of Loughborough, University of Herts, Nottingham Trent University, Middlesex University, Lambeth Academy to name a few.

In the education sector Giant iTabs are used to help navigate students during Fresher Weeks and open days, to help app developers when teaching and training students and even as live timetables and event schedulers. We’ve also helped with more broad applications such as providing an advertising and promotion technology for college and university commercial teams right the way through to the chosen technology for visitor experience centres.

Where technology and education cross over is often when usability and familiarity come together to make technology fun and engaging for the students. Learning in this environment only enhances the students’ experiences. Our client Magdalin Clancy, Assistant Principal, Business – United Learning from the Lambeth Academy says: “The Giant iTab is a really powerful way to engage this young generation. If anyone is hesitant about how to attract people on to a stand, then look no further. We had queues around the block – the content is what the students were interested in and the Giant iTab showcased it beautifully.”

The rise in mobile learning has fuelled a growing demand for technology to provide a ‘group learning experience’. Using the same individual mobile experience students would use for educational apps in their everyday student life, engaging a number of students and using the same apps and hardware but on a larger scale allows educators and students alike to go through that journey together. The Giant iTab truly facilitates that experience.

We think this beautifully sums up how technology and education can cross over and benefits all parties. As they say in show business: “I’m here all week”. So, if you’re attending BETT 2020 and would like to learn more or simply have a coffee and chat, come and visit us in Hall 8 on stand SB46. See you on the show floor!
