Accessibility taken seriously in prestigious educational technology awards

The winners of the prestigious BETT Awards 2007 were announced on January 10, 2007 at the BETT Awards Dinner held at The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane,

The annual BETT Awards represent a partnership between Becta, the Government’s lead agency for ICT in education, BESA, the trade association representing
the educational supply industry and Emap Education, the organisers of BETT – the largest educational technology show in the world.

The awards also recognise outstanding education sector products and learning solutions. Judges review the entries based on criteria including design, cost-effectiveness,
support of higher order skills and effective learning and teaching styles.

The BETT Awards 2007 programme upholds the view of the awards partners that no product or service which unreasonably excludes learners on the basis of individual
need should be considered exemplary thus only entries which met the levels of accessibility required in this years awards were shortlisted.

    It’s wonderful to know that such a well respected partnership consider inclusion to be a factor in their awards. Open acknowledgement of the importance of universal inclusion and praise for success, can only encourage greater levels of success in the future.
