    It’s that time of year once again when Moby packs his kit bag and makes his way to the Big Smoke to show off all the awesome things that are happening at BrainPOP HQ.

    We’ll be at STAND C30 at the ExCel center in London from Wednesday 30th Jan to Saturday 2nd Feb. We’d love to see you.

    There will be a million and one things to experience at BETT so why should you come and visit the BrainPOPpers?

    1. You’ll get to experience GameUp UK for the very first time, our new games based learning section. This new area of BrainPOP UK will get plenty of blog posts of its own but BETT visitors will be the first to play. You’ll love it. Seriously.
    2. You’ll be able to see our mobile apps in full effect. We now have apps for both Apple© and Android™ devices and we’ll be showing you how you can access the full movie and quiz range in your tablet or smartphone device. We also have Gavin Smart presenting on the stand on Thursday talking about how he employs our app in his teaching.
    3. We’re very lucky not just to have amazing teachers joining the BrainPOP team on the stand but also selection of wonderful teacher guest speakers. We’ll be recording the talks in case you can’t make it and adding them to our YouTube channel too.

    You’ll also be able to cuddle up with Moby and take home a fistful of new BrainPOP badges for your class (or just for you!).

    Phew! So much to see and do. We’ll write much of the madness up over the next few weeks so even if you can’t make BETT you’ll still be able to feel involved.

    PS: If you are coming (or considering it) we can highly recommend Terry Freedman’s “Guide to BETT“. It’s free, it’s designed to help visitors get the most from their visit and is comprehensive and very readable.

    Hope to see you there!
