I am filming at BETT this year.
I am wearing several hats. One is that of filmaker for various commercial firms. Another is scouting out the interesting and non-mainstream activity that goes on around the (increasingly) global aspect of the technology show.
I like to give a showcase to those smaller organisations and individuals who are trying to make a difference, in their own way, with technology in education.
One such person is Zoe Ross. She has built a website resource that gives pupils practical tools they can use to look after their own wellbeing and encourages conversations between teachers, parents and children around topics relating to mental health, enabling adults to pick up possible issues and provide positive, early intervention.
She has funded this resource herself; come down to London and hired a stand at BETT and is paying for her own board and keep whilst here. Someone who isn’t a big corporate player who is trying to make a small positive dent in the universe.
If you are at BETT – pop along to her stand BFS39 Mind Moose and see what she is trying to achieve with this platform.
