Planning for BETT 2010
BETT is the big event in the education ICT calendar, not just for you but for us as well. Knowing that 30,000 people will flood through the doors of Olympia in about 7 working weeks tends to focus our minds on making sure that we put on a good show for them/you.

Free DreamSpark software downloads for school students
This is one of those “Are you sure? Really sure?” blog posts. Where somebody tells you something, and you ask “Are you sure? Really sure?” So I have checked this, and now had it confirmed by the announcement of it in a Bill Gates speech this evening. We have announced that the DreamSpark programme is...

The London Grid makes a move
We made a few announcements in BETT week – and during the course of this week, I’ll make sure I write about them all (if you’re impatient, you can see them all here ). One of the most significant from a product/service perspective was that we announced the launch of the London Grid for Learning’s new...

Windows Server 2008 is coming (near you)
The TechNet roadshows are coming soon - in April and May the team will be on their way around the country, talking about (and showing) lots more of Windows Server 2008 and the other products launched this week. I know that the launch event in Birmingham in March was filled up very quickly, and there...

SkyDrive - 5GB of free storage
I like SkyDrive. Before it was invented, I used to have to load any files I wanted to share onto an FTP site somewhere, and then write clunky links to them. Now, I just drag my files onto my SkyDrive , and then provide a nice graphical link to them, like this: But up until now, it's been called Windows...

Partners in Learning programme relaunched
For the last 5 years we have been running a programme, called Partners in Learning, to extend and expand the development of learning, and especially the ways that ICT can support learning in schools.

Free Search - The 10th Day of Christmas
A few weeks ago, we introduced the new Search Server 2008 (this is software based, not another box for the server room), which allows you to make it easier for people within your school or local authority to find information published on your network - and places you select in external information sources...

e-Safety in schools - some help for you
Becta have recommended that each school has a nominated E-Safety officer - which could mean that in staff rooms around the country, people suddenly make themselves busy when the head walks in with a letter in his hand! So, if you've got the job, or one of your colleagues has it and is looking for some...

Product launch invitation: PerformancePoint Server 2007
This is probably something for local authority teams, rather than individual schools, but I thought it worth a mention to everybody because there may be some schools who are interested in using this for their own monitoring - especially in federations, where information sharing across institutions allows...
