Patrick Hayes, Director of BESA, chairs the judging panel: “This was a record year for the BETT Awards, with more applications from Ed-Tech companies than ever before. The quality of applications was incredibly high. It is no mean feat to be a BETT Awards Finalist. Huge congratulations should be in order for all the companies who made the cut this year.”
The £1m LbQ Feedback Study currently underway in 50 schools across 12 educational boroughs in England and Ireland was submitted to BETT judges as an example of how Learning by Questions is constantly developing to meet the needs of teachers and students as well as its commitment to research as the back bone of ed-tech development.
Frazer Bailie is the Principal of Whitehouse Primary School in Belfast: “I am very excited by the potential of Learning by Questions. It links sound educational theory, with user-friendly technology and a clear understanding of the demands on busy teachers. At its heart, however, it champions the potential of every child to do better and a belief that this can be done by every committed teacher with the right tools.”
Tony Cann CBE who founded Learning by Questions and leads a team of thirty staff in its development said “Although we’re new to the world stage, LbQ have been busy developing and testing this programme for several years now. It is both a product and a pedagogy, with integrity, evidence and feedback at its core and every member of the LbQ team is proud to be a part of it. The nominations from the BETT judging panel are a wonderful early acknowledgement from the ed-tech community.”
