TurningPoint 2008 will be demonstrated on stand B51 at The BETT show 2008, held from January 9 – 12 at London’s Olympia. TurningPoint 2008 is a free downloadable upgrade for existing users and comes with any set of new devices. Additional features such as QuestionPoint, TurningPoint Anywhere and TestingPoint make it easier and faster for teachers to plan their lessons and keep them better informed. QuestionPoint has over 30,000 tried and tested assessment items that work within any TurningPoint device. There is content for a huge range of subjects, meaning Teachers can prepare for their lessons quickly and easily. TurningPoint Anywhere allows Teachers to insert questions into any application, meaning that they can work with more than Microsoft PowerPoint® and have a much wider network from which they can draw content, allowing for a richer interactive experience. TestingPoint is an easy to use, time saving assessment tool that supports self-paced questions in a variety of formats: multiple choice, numerical, matching pairs, free-text, fill in the blank, multiple answers and true/false. When it comes to getting answers, TestingPoint is a great help. Mitt Nathwani, Head of Product Pioneering for Steljes Ltd, the sole distributor of Turning Technologies in the UK, commented; “At BETT 2007, TurningPoint won the Primary and Secondary Hardware award, and demand has continued to grow this year, in the UK and around the world. TurningPoint is being used in a multitude of environments, ranging from live classroom instruction and higher education, to corporate consulting and training events. This new platform runs across the full range of Turning Technologies’ hardware, making TurningPoint one of the most function-rich and simple to use systems on the market today.” For more information, or to see TurningPoint 2008 for yourself, please visit stand B51 or contact 08450 724 800.
