Once again, it’s time for the first edtech industry event of the year, when all the latest developments in the wonderful world of education technology are revealed at the Bett show!
For 2020, not only is Bett in an all-new singing and dancing format with six themed zones, but the NetSupport Stand, NL44, is going to be looking pretty impressive too. Situated in the new Management Solutions Zone, it’s literally a work of art, with a fab new theme and dedicated areas for all our activities and guests. It’s one thing working with the stand design on a computer screen – and quite another ....Read more
The biggest exhibition in the UK edtech calendar, Bett 2020, is just a few weeks away – and the anticipation is building!

A common theme that has run throughout 2019 is people saying, “I don’t know where the year has gone” or “The weeks are just flying by!”. And so they have, at an alarming rate, and we now find ourselves with Christmas around the corner and the end of the year (and decade) not far behind. What happened?!
Well, the NetSupport team was busy, busy, busy. We’ve attended tons of shows throughout the year, which is always a great opportunity to both connect with our existing customers and chat to those who are interested in what our solutions can do for ....Read more
With the current countdown to Christmas, Mark Anderson (@ICT Evangelist) has taken a new approach to the traditional advent calendar, releasing a digitally accessed, edtech-themed ‘Appvent’ calendar. Rather than opening doors, this online resource reveals a treat each day in the form of useful applications Mark has reviewed and that he recommends to schools.
NetSupport is proud to have already featured on both the third and fifth days, with the alerting and notification ....Read more
So, Christmas is on the way and nothing signals just how fast it’s approaching more than the doors opening on an advent calendar! Or should we say an Appvent calendar…
That’s right, NetSupport’s trusted friend, Mark Anderson (@ICTEvangelist), has created an 'Appvent' calendar of edtech apps he’s reviewed and he’s sharing one every day on his blog and social media in the run-up to Christmas. There are sure to be some real gems coming up in the days ahead that schools can use to ....Read more

There’ll even be a showcase of student voice on the final day, with ....Read more

Bett is only a few weeks away and it’s always a busy time those in education and the edtech space. This year, both the Bett show and the Education show will be happening at the same time at the London ExCeL arena. I cannot wait!
I’m pleased to confirm that I’ll be working with NetSupport Group on their stand during the four days of the event. If you’d like to say ....Read more
Every day is a busy one for educators and school support staff - and finding space to top up on knowledge is difficult at the best of times. So, we thought we’d lend a hand by producing a weekly series of short podcasts to give staff another option to hear quick tips and ideas from others.
The series is called ‘Five in Five’, and we’ve invited a range of esteemed `guests from the education space to share five suggestions, ways or reasons to do something related to ....Read more
In a world where tolerance is seemingly being tested to its limits, social-emotional skills are more important than ever. But what are they and how do we learn them?
A 2015 study by the Early Intervention Foundation called Social and emotional skills in childhood and their long-term effects on adult life, outlines just how important these skills are in providing children with the coping mechanisms and strategies to be able to motivate themselves, control their own behaviour, deal with situations when things go wrong, and be able to ....Read more
