Fast becoming a yearly tradition, the Sales Team at Adaptive IT spent a day at the Excel Arena, visiting the annual Bett Show. Bett is the world’s leading education technology event celebrated in the UK, featuring market leading manufacturers showcasing their latest offerings to the visiting industry delegates. Attended by 34,500 educators, it is the perfect opportunity to discover the market’s newest technological releases.

We have compiled a list of our top 5 most exciting and innovative products on show!

ClassVR – Avantis

Virtual Reality made its debut at Bett 2017 from a number of different manufacturers; in our opinion the most impressive of which was the ClassVR from Avantis. Bringing affordable VR to the classroom, ClassVR comes complete with hardware, software and curriculum-linked activities and lesson plans, equipping teachers with everything they need to introduce this cutting-edge technology straight into the classroom. What’s more, you don’t even need an additional mobile device to make it work!

Biometrics and new MAT software – InVentry

InVentry took the opportunity to showcase multiple new features of their leading Visitor Management solution, including enhanced functionality within Multi Academy Trusts. This means Trust employees can now travel across multiple sites using the same ID, and Trust wide reporting now allows for the generation of personnel reports across all Trust sites.
Biometrics adds to the already feature-rich system, with the introduction of fingerprint scanners for staff, removing the need to carry lanyards and labels, using a more permanent form of identification.
