It's March, and here's what's been happening at E-spaces.
Finally BETT 2023!!!!
We count down no more. The British Educational Teaching and Technology (BETT) Show 2023 is here. We are honoured to have our product on display at the ExCeL Center in London! We will be showcasing from stand number FS41 and getting to meet some of the team members that make learning fun, seamless, and connected.
We are looking forward to this chance to connect with a large audience. We hope to have a multitude of schools visit our stand and trial our offers, provide valuable feedback, and discuss their experiences using our app’s beta version. Your feedback is always valuable to us.
Beta testing is in progress
We continue beta testing with our five schools: Herschel Grammar School, Greenford High School, the French School in London, Crosthwaithe Primary School, Gateshead College, and Sunderland College are on this exciting journey with us.
To enhance the online digital tool for teachers and students, all feedback is being gathered. The ultimate users of this tool, teachers and students, would have tried and tested it.
Once again, we are grateful to the schools that have joined this testing round, and we are excited to invite all of them to an exclusive event at the end of the testing period.
If you are interested in joining the funding round, there is still time. Our funding round is not yet closed, and we would be excited to work with investors who want to change the educational landscape with us.
Our pitching practice continues with us attending various events and pitching our product to them. The buzz continues with ongoing beta testing, and many are awaiting feedback on this application that will significantly reduce teacher workload and burnout while providing instant feedback.
The company believes in continuous learning and skill advancement. Hence, Yvonne Buluma-Samba has been leading by example by attending the International Women’s Week Kick-Off and How to Handle Difficult Conversations. Various speakers imparted useful tools that hat the entire team has implemented.
Digital Catapult partnership going strong

Our fifth school in focus is out!
E-spaces has a series that focuses on schools that promote well-being among staff and students. This series examines the integration of EdTech into the school's curriculum and, ultimately, how the three aspects impact academic success.
The school in focus this month is Eltham College, which offers an exceptional sixth-form program for career guidance.
