A Look Inside The Casio Classroom at BETT 201210 January 2012
Casio has announced its participation at January's BETT exhibition, where it will be giving teachers the opportunity to take part in mock classroom tutorials to help them get the best from electronic devices, such as projectors and full-colour graphic calculators.
Promoting flexible, connected and cost-effective teaching aids, Casio's flagship projector range - featuring the company's own Laser & LED Hybrid light source - will also be on display, alongside its recently launched graphic calculator and digital keyboard ranges. Visitors to the Casio stand will be able to quiz the Casio team about how to use digital devices to get pupils more involved in what's being taught.
Casio will also be highlighting its focus on creativity in schools. During the summer of 2011, Casio Projectors joined forces with education charity CCE to form Bright Minds, a national competition allowing schools to show off the superb works of art created by their pupils. Entries were judged by a panel that included designer Wayne Hemingway and TES writer Helen Ward. The winning work, from Thameside Junior School in Essex, will be on display at Casio's stand.
Nieve Cavanagh, Casio's Senior Product Marketing Manager, said: "Used in the right ways, classroom technology can make it easier for teachers to capture the attention of their students. We're really looking forward to talking to visitors at this year's BETT and discussing how we can all make the best possible use of classroom tech. With budget cuts looming for some, we'll also be showing that teachers can have the best equipment while keeping costs to a minimum."
