Schools visit BETT to see innovations and technology trends to help guide their IT strategy. I will be helping out on The Open Forum Europe stand SW105, where we will be distributing Edubuntu CDs and spreading the word about Free software and Open Standards.

Just before Christmas I bought an OLPC for my kids through the Give One Get One programme, so when I was asked to help at BETT I figured it would be the perfect place to show off the little green laptop. Unfortunately it is stuck in the post, somewhere on its way from America to the UK. It got as far as my brother in law in Massachusetts, but then got stuck in the Christmas rush of parcels.
