Influential technology in education researcher, Futurelab, will take a stand at BETT 2007 to showcase new resources and research into personalisation, collaboration and learning tools.
Researchers at the not-for-profit firm are currently experimenting with a curriculum that explore the principles of personalised learning. It will reveal its findings so far to attendees.
Also on display will be Fizzees, a prototype technology that motivates young people to manage and monitor their health by caring for a 'digital pet'.
Futurelab has also been exploring social and collaborative learning. It will display an innovative mobile phone experience known as Hitchers, which encourages teens to interact with their community, using their mobile phone to set challenges or games for others to play.
Visitors will also be able to grab a copy of Futurelab's 'Social Software and Learning' report, which examines how blogs and wikis could generate a new approach in education.
The researchers will also showcase Create-A-Scape, a free service that lets teachers and children create digitally enhanced experiences or tours which they try out in their local community using PDAs.
Futurelab will also showcase research that explores the potential of games for learning.
A Futurelab seminar, "Mobile learning: breaking down the barriers", takes place on 10 January at 4.15pm.
