The Bett show is the world's largest education event. It hosts over 800 leading companies in the education technology world, and brings people together from all corners of the global education community. Whether you're a child, parent, or education professional, the Bett show will open your eyes to some amazing new innovations that are actively transforming and improving education worldwide. So, naturally, My Online Schooling couldn't wait to attend!
A couple of weeks ago, the My Online Schooling Education Team travelled to London for the day to attend the show. We met and discovered so many amazing products and organisations, but we whittled them down to our Top 5 favourite exhibitors for this week's blog. Check them out below!
