Texthelp Team

Join us at BETT 2020 to minimise teacher workload and maximise student outcomes!

On 22-25 January 2020, 34,000 visitors and 800 companies will come together at the global meeting place for all things education...BETT. This event brings together people, ideas, practices and technologies so that educators and learners can fulfill their potential.

At Texthelp, we believe that regardless of an individual student's ability and aspirations, literacy is an integral part of every young person’s learning journey. The ability to read and write with confidence impacts all aspects of a child’s academic, social and personal development, from the early years right through to graduation and beyond.

Therefore, it is our mission to provide the right technology to educators, to support students on their personal literacy and learning journeys. Through innovative technology that can help students read, write and express their thoughts with clarity and confidence, we can unlock everyone’s full potential.

Take Ten with Texthelp at Stand #NH56

Did we mention that BETT attracts around 34,000 visitors and 800 companies each year? That’s a lot of people to meet and resources to discover, which can get overwhelming at times. So, we’re creating an oasis - or break room, if you will - right in the middle of the Exhibit Hall floor. If you’re ever in need of a quick break or pick-me-up, we’ve got you covered. Stop by Stand #NH56 for a coffee and a chat. Here are just a handful of the things we’d love to talk with you about:
  • The weather - an oldie but a goodie
  • Minimising teacher workload - did we mention we have treats?
  • Maximising student potential - this is an education conference after all
  • Our three BETT Award Finalists (Read&Write, WriQ, and EquatIO) - we don’t mean to brag, but…
  • Education 4.0 - you’ve got to chat about the latest “buzzword”
  • Football - your favourite team is our favourite team
To learn more about us and what we stand for (before visiting the stand), here’s a quick introductory video. 

So stop on by  Stand #NH56 for some R&R!
