TCEA 2024 Roundup | News from Austin’s EdTech Exposition

At the TCEA Convention & Exposition, thousands of educators from various parts of the world get together to connect, gain knowledge, and improve their craft while becoming familiar with new advances in education technology. The event’s focus is not only on EdTech but also on good teaching, good learning, and good leadership with EdTech.

TCEA’s mission is to prepare educators to become curious and to discover education technology through the on-trend sessions, leading speakers, and an exhibit hall full of exhibitors. This year’s event featured more than 800 sessions on various topics such as leadership, mathematics, STEAM, digital citizenship, literacy, English language arts, and more.
Lumio by SMART Technologies was highlighted as TCEA attendees were the first in North America to experience the new Spark plan. The Spark plan offers new, additional capabilities and features designed to support schools, Multi-Academy Trusts, and other organizations with enhanced instructional consistency and more flexible lesson creation and delivery.
New features include an Organization Library, Shared Libraries, Co-Editing, and Learning Management System Integrations.

Dan McMahon, VP of Product at SMART Technologies, says: “We’re excited to reveal Lumio’s Spark plan at TCEA this year, giving customers access to their top-priority organization-level features. Our new multi-tiered offering continues to set Lumio apart from other tools, providing highly requested features and functionality today and in the future, at a really competitive cost. The organizations we talk to are very eager to get access to these features, and we’re proud to support even more schools and educators with keeping learning fun and engaging.”

For organizations seeking enhanced instructional consistency and even more efficient workflows, Lumio’s Spark plan provides a library to house approved curriculum content, integration with popular platforms, and the ability for teachers to collaborate on content. It allows educators to easily find and access approved curriculum content and seamlessly share and build resources with colleagues, saving them time.

TCEA attendees will receive the first public viewing of the Spark plan’s newest features alongside a chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ granting them a one-year Spark subscription for themselves and their teaching colleagues. All US educators at TCEA will also have the opportunity to claim one year of Lumio’s Standard plan for just $1.
