Resource awards are here

The winners of the 2011 Education Resources Awards (pictured below) will be announced at a gala event during the Education Show in Birmingham next week. The awards, organised by the British Educational Suppliers Association, aim to recognise the best in ICT and non-ICT resources and equipment, and will be presented at the Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on Friday 18 March.

Projectors come into focus

Digital technology company InFocus has launched a range of projectors to mark a partnership with a new UK distributor. The projectors range from a budget model costing #163;532 excluding VAT, to a version with five lenses, motorised lens shift and automatic correction to eliminate distortion, costing about #163;3,900 excluding VAT. Details are available from new distributor Maverick. Visit www.maverick.co.uk

ICT prevalent in class, survey finds

More than half of all teachers use ICT in every lesson, and eight out of 10 welcome the use of social networking sites in education, according to a survey. Research carried out by networking company Netgear found that 58 per cent of teachers said they used ICT in all their lessons, and 77 per cent said they had seen a rise in classroom interaction as a result of the use of technology. The survey, carried out at this year's BETT show for educational technology, also found that 80 per cent of teachers said networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, had a role in the classroom.
