SOS om globala utbildningsföretag
The One and Only Bett show:
Bett show annonserar sig själv som ”the worlds leading learning technology event”. Om detta event kan man läsa i dagens artikel av Catarina Player-Koro och Lena Tyrén. På Betts hemsida annonserar 688 företag och organisationer alltifrån 10 Monkeys – ett finskt matematikprogram som skyltar med de finska resultaten i PISA-mätningarna – till animationsprogrammet Zu3D. På samma sida görs det reklam för 1 592 produkter av typen 2Do It Yourself: ”Children engage with pre-made games and activities on a daily basis; now with 2Do It Yourself, they can create their own and share them with anyone, anywhere.”
Till annonsörerna hör också världens största utbildningsföretag, Pearson, som vi skrivit om tidigare i SOS. Så här presenterar sig företaget:
