The latest trends in educational innovation at BETT 2024

The most relevant international edtech meeting

This year, BETT was once again the key meeting place to explore the latest trends, share ideas and collaborate on creating a more dynamic educational future. It was held at the ExCel convention center in London, UK, from January 24-26, 2024 where more than 500 EdTech companies from around the world gathered. More than an educational trade show, BETT represents a showcase for the latest trends in education and a space for collaboration and inspiration.

After three intense days at the event, the educational trends that will mark the year 2024 have been identified and shared. Artificial Intelligence has been one of the topics highlighted in talks and sessions. This approach reflects a growing interest in aspects such as learning personalization, assessment optimization, predictive analytics and the creation of personalized educational content, all of which promise to improve the quality and effectiveness of education.

In addition, there has been a significant resurgence of virtual reality in education, especially for simulations. Virtual reality offers immersive and contextualized experiences that can significantly enhance the learning process. However, despite the rapid progress of this technology, there is still a lack of quality educational content and a definition of the transversal implementation in the curricula that would allow the extension of its use in the educational environment.

Another crucial aspect is the need for quality digital educational content that provides flexible and motivating learning. In this context, teacher training continues to be fundamental in driving educational change.
