The ActivTable is a uniquely powerful tool for learning through small group collaboration and building essential 21st century skills such as communication, creativity and critical thinking for up to six students at a time. One of the most popular items at the whole event; the ActivTable was by far the most admired, with the highest number of customer demonstrations.

Sharp’s ‘Big Pad’ was another product that received lots of attention. The giant 70-inch, easy to use touchscreen monitor and breathtaking image quality appealed to many teachers. Regarded as the future in classroom teaching aids, it looks set to become the new must-have classroom accessory, as the dominance of projectors in schools is coming to an end.
