Microsoft at Bett

Rebecca Paddick caught up with Steve Beswick, senior director of education Microsoft UK, at Bett 2014

Microsoft’s focus at this year’s Bett show was helping primary schools teachers prepare for the new computing curriculum.

The tech giant unveiled a brand new suite of materials aimed specifically at primary school teachers, at the ExCel last week. 

Launched in partnership with educational publisher Rising Stars, the free Switched On Computing resource has been developed as part of Microsoft’s wider effort to ensure primary school teachers – who have never taught this kind of computer science before – have the skills, confidence and tools to deliver the new curriculum within the next nine months.
