Bett‏  @Bett_show

Welcome to today’s #BettChat. Who wants to start us off by discussing the ICT topics/issues for academies & free schools?

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

Raising The Participation Age – more pressure on academies to offer a good post 16 educational experience. http://bit.ly/GPYA4P #Bettchat

Bett‏  @Bett_show

Is anyone exhibiting at #Bett_Show providing resources/systems to support academies? #BettChat

Daydream Education‏  @DaydreamEdu

@Bett_show #bettchat are free schools still to be run as a charitable status? Plenty of cost issues there!

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

Bett‏  @Bett_show

What do you think will be the topic on everyone’s lips at #Bett_Show? #BettChat

#ProgressoMIS supports academies and free schools to use their data more effectively and efficiently #BettChat

Lara UniServity‏  @LaraUniServity

Enabling networking & collaboration to prevent schools from becoming isolated and to share best practice is important #BettChat

Firefly Solutions‏  @fireflyteam

@Bett_show Lots of the schools we work with want to talk about iPads and mobile learning #BettChat

semantise‏  @Semantise

@LaraUniServity has a good point. Non-Academy / Academy schools will get left as LA support is withdrawn due to cost cutting, #BettChat

Animate It!‏  @AnimateEducate

We think everyone is going to be talking about budgets this year. How to get the best value with limited ££ #BettChat

Capita SIMS‏  @CapitaSIMS

Are there any Tweeters from actual Free Schools or Academies that can contribute to this? #BETTChat

Frog‏  @frogtrade

Visit stand D100 at the @Bett_show to have a play with the new technology developed by @frogtrade http://wp.me/p1HkQJ-fh #BettChat

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

Protecting students from inappropriate sites or online bullying and having a suitable e-safety policy. http://bit.ly/VhOoml #Bettchat

School Website  ‏@SchoolWebsite

The arrival of amazing new consumer technologies doesn’t dilute what is already a great education system unless people let it #BettChat

Lara UniServity‏  @LaraUniServity

@capitasims Tend to find few school staff are able to spare the time at this stage of the day (especially this time in the term) #BettChat

Lara UniServity‏  @LaraUniServity

@animateeducate Yes, this will affect all schools, especially those that lose out as funding formulas around FSM & SEN change #BettChat

Lara UniServity‏  @LaraUniServity

@Semantise Perhaps this is a positive if tech can enable schools to create new networks through interest rather than locality? #BettChat
