Today's World Mental Health Day brings to light numerous news stories on the state of our young people’s mental health and reveals how much more needs to be done to combat the issue.

As technology continues to advance, it is becoming more and more integrated into how young people learn, create and discover themselves. To find out more about these developments, and their impact on education, in January some colleagues and I headed to Bett; the world’s biggest education technology event. Bett brings together educators, brands, media and anyone with an interest in the future of education under one (very large) roof at ExCel London.
