Purpose and goal
At BETT, approximately 850 companies and 35,000 people from the education and technology sector gathered to discuss future pedagogy with a focus on technology and innovation. Arduino took the opportunity to discuss the future´s STEAM pedagogy and build partnerships for successful EU projects. BETT is an excellent platform for this kind of networking and our expectations were met.
Expected results and effects
During a few intensive conference days, many meetings were held, some planned other spontaneous, new contacts were tied, and many interesting talks about future STEM teaching and possible collaboration took place. We are confident that this will lead to future partnerships and EU projects where we together with like-minded will work to solve societal challenges in education.
Planned approach and implementation
Our participation at the BETT conference was carefully planned and organized. We took the opportunity to discuss the future of STEAM education with key players in order to build a consortium of partners for successful future EU projects. Several spontaneous meetings and conversations also took place, which they can generate in future projects and partnerships.
